He has come quite a long way from his Koothu-P-Pattarai days, and seems to be making steady progress in Kollywood. Vimal, who shot to fame with his role in Pasanga and more recently in Sundar C’s Kalakalappu, has been shooting in the city for Vasanth’s latest offering Moondru Per Moondru Kadhal and has three other projects lined up this year.
“I feel fortunate to have been noticed through my Koothu-P-Pattarai performances, and Pasanga turned out to be the ideal launchpad for me,” he says proudly.
Vimal has been flooded with quite a few offers since, and considers himself lucky to be working with some good directors. “I have been very comfortable working with Vasanth, who despite his status in the industry has made me feel very comfortable on the sets. I feel like I’m working with a family member, not a director,” he says, pointing out his comfort levels with his MPMK director.
Vimal will next be seen in C S Amudhan’s Rendavathu Padam, debut director Ravi Lallin’s Sillunu Oru Sandhippu and Pandiraj’s Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, where he will share screen space with actor-comedian Sivakarthikeyan of Marina fame.
