 Amid rumours that he has delivered a knock-out performance in his upcoming Bala-directed ‘Avan Ivan’, actor Vishal has finished the dubbing portion of the film and has quietly moved on to shoot for his next film, a home production, which is being directed by Prabhudeva.

The untitled film has the sizzler Sameera Reddy opposite Vishal for the first time. Already, the combination of Vishal’s rugged looks and Sameera’s ethnic beauty have raised expectations in the industry about their pairing. In the meantime, Vishal is said to have assured director Boopathy Pandian that he would star in his film after finishing his film with Sameera.

The first schedule of the film has already been completed, it is reliably learnt. During the breaks in shooting, Vishal reportedly came across a nice script and wasted no time in reaching the origin of the script. The impressive script, as it turned out, had emanated from none other than John Mahendran, son of yesteryear’s celebrated director Mahendran.

John was apparently taken aback by Visha’s arrival at his residence and then got down to discussing the detailed script with the latter. At the end of it, the actor returned only after assuring John that he would first finish his ‘prior commitments’ before starting work with his film!
