Vimal is striving hard to carve a niche for himself in the Kollywood industry. Though some of his recent releases didn't do well, he pins hope on his upcoming films. His next 'Mannar Vagera' will be releasing very soon as 70% of the shooting is already done. Its first look poster released recently received good response from the audience. In the meantime, he has signed one more project with debutant Dharan which will be a small budget film. This one will be a thriller and the shooting will start from March.
