After successfully combating the Coronavirus, Tamil superstar Vishal Krishna is back in action. His latest film is the actioner Chakra and it’s being readied for a Diwali release.
“We are in discussion for an OTT release. But it’s definitely releasing this Diwali. We’ve just a few days of shooting left,” says Vishal who successfully fought the Corona.
“More than me, it was my father whom I was most worried about.We both pulled through. Now I am back shooting for Chakra. All precautions in place. We are a crew of 35 people, all practicing the safety measures,” says Vishal, adding that he doesn’t see movie theatres re-opening for another one year.
“That’s how it is, and the movie industry needs to get used to it,” says Vishal. The star-actor runs an NGO which is looking after as many needy technicians and artistes as possible. “If there are Covid deaths, there are also an alarming number of suicides. It is heartbreaking to see the lower middle-class suffering so much. I feel really sad about the situation.”
In Chakra Vishal fights corruption in politics. “There is corruption and cheating everywhere. Even an everyday thing like ordering food at the restaurant , we get charged unbelievable amounts of taxes. Where does this money go? Today our money is being taken away without our knowledge.”
Chakra will open this Diwali. “Hopefully my fans will give it the same love from their homes that they would have given it in the theatre.”
