Vishal recently got in trouble with the Nadigar Sangam as he was one of the first to support Kamal strongly through his posts and updates in social networks. His main posts were about why the industry was in silence about the controversy over "Vishwaroopam".
The Nadigar Sangam, headed by Sarath Kumar, did not look kindly upon his voicing and had sent Vishal a show case notice asking him to explain his actions. Kamal Hassan spoke of this issue at a press meet a few days ago. He said that he is ready to stand up and support Vishal in this matter and also added that he had confidence in Vishal as he was a very brave young man and would come out of this problem with no harm.
