Vimal is a busy star these days and has several projects lined up. All eyes are on Sundar C's Kalakalappu which is slated to release on May 11 and stars Vimal, Shiva and Santhanam among others in key roles. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that a lot rides on this film for Vimal, who is also looking forward to Ishtam.
In fact, Vimal and Santhanam have worked together in Kalakalappu and Ishtam and the star comedian is in awe of the Pasanga actor's meteoric rise.
It may be a little-known fact that the two were part of Ajith-starrer Kireedom (2007) released some years ago, but there was little scope for them in that movie.
However, their careers have progressed in different routes with Santhanam becoming one of the most sought-after actors and his recent OK OK has sent his stock soaring higher.
In fact, Santhanam is amazed at Vimal's rapid rise and being a Koothu-p-pattarai member he has achieved what he wanted to. Santhanam said that he was happy that Vimal has not changed despite achieving success.
