Is Vishal going to take the plunge into politics? Internet was abuzz with the news that the actor is all set to contest against the state's Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in the Kuppam constituency. But Vishal took to his Twitter on his social media and clarifies that joining politics is nothing but a rumour.

In a message that he posted on his social media pages, the actor wrote, "I have been hearing rumours about my entry into politics in Andhra Pradesh & contesting in Kuppam constituency. I absolutely deny it, not aware of this at all& nobody contacted me about this. I don't know from where this news surfaced. It's going to be Movies & Movies for me & there is no intention of entering into Andhra Pradesh politics or contesting against Mr.Chandra Babu Naidu. (sic)"

Though Vishal tried his hand in politics in 2017. His nomination was rejected on the grounds that only eight proposers had validly proposed Vishal's candidature instead of the mandatory 10. The actor is currently busy with his films. He is playing the lead in debutant Vinoth Kumar's Laththi and Adhik Ravichandran's period gangster saga Mark Antony, and is also planning to direct the sequel to Thupparivalan.
