To our surprise, actor Vishnu Vishal who is known for providing quality movies to Tamil film audience, posted a reply revealing that he gave a try to act in the film 14 years ago. He couldn’t believe that almost 14 years have gone since he met Venkat Prabhu for the first time to get an opportunity to act in the film. “Sar unbelievable…its been almost 14 years when i met you first for an opportunity in #chennai28… Time flies🤗 Wil always be a special film for tamil audiences…” he wrote in his tweet.
However, Vishnu managed to debut through a sports film “Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu”. Being a cricket aspirant since his childhood, Vishnu went on to portray a struggling cricketer in “Jeeva” which became a hit. On seeing this tweet from Vishnu, Venkat Prabhu said that he is so happy that Vishnu had a better debut with Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu. “Yes bro!! Time flies!! But so happy that U had a even better debut with vennila kabadi kuzhu!! Keeping rocking!!!”

Here’s how Vishnu replied :
Though many followers of both of them questioned why Vishnu didn’t get to play a role in Chennai 28, neither of them replied. Few even requested Venkat PRabhu to cast Vishnu in the third part of the sports drama.
