Vishnu Vishal debuted as Marimuthu in the Tamil sports drama Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu. From the first film itself, he gained recognition with his innocent face and naive smile. But he surprised everyone with his success in comedy films. In Ratsasan, he broke away from the track of comedy and played a cop investigating serial killings. It has been twelve years since he came into the reel screen. Currently, he is working with Manu Anand in his new film F.I.R.
