Vemal has no time to catch a breather and celebrate the success of Manjappai where he plays a doting grandson to Rajkiran. With a whopping six movie shoots to shuttle between, Vemal says that its part of a trip that he’s relly having fun with. Excerpts from an interview:

Dream role

I am hoping for a role that will show me as a guy from the city and in which I can speak in the Chennai baashai (slang). I have acted in a number of movies that show me as a countryside (village) guy, so if I get any offers that show me as a guy from Chennai, I will readily take it up

Large than life role

I will be playing the role of a superhero in C S Amudhan’s next movie Rendavathu Padam. I think this will be really exciting

Current projects

Right now, I am busy with Anjala, Oru Oorla Rendu Raja, and Nee Yellam Nalla Varuveda

Bond with Soori

I have played many roles with Soori which have turned out to be a success. Even in Oru Oorla Randu Raja, I will be working with him. It always works for the two of us

The Next Sivakarthikeyan?

I have never thought so. I just take up the roles that please me and act
