The cast comprises Vishal, Lakshmi Menon, Bharathiraja and Vikranth, directed by Suseenthiran and produced by Vishal Film Factory. Talking about playing a different role in Pandiya Nadu , Vishal said that the decision to play the role of a meek hero was not accepted by many. “People dissuaded saying that only action films suits me. But the audience and the media have accepted my role and I am happy about it.”
The film which was initially released in a few screens is running a many theatres across the state.
Talking about acting with legends like Bharathiraja, he said “working with Bharathiraja was a proud moment for me and I enjoyed every minute of it. No doubt, he is one of the main reasons for the movie’s success.”
Asked about his next production venture, Mr. Vishal said that he will be producing a film with Vikranth in the lead role. He will be working with Suseenthiran once again. As an actor, Vishal’s next film will be ‘Naan Sigappu Manithan’ .

Lakshmi Menon, who was also present, said that she was happy to be associated with the film and called it a special one in her career.
