"I go back home and then I get it on the news saying my nomination is rejected. Fair enough. Actually, the territory and that situation made me decide on politics. Yes, I am going to come into politics. Thanks to them," he said, speaking at the India Today South Conclave in Hyderabad.
The next Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu would be a game-changer, Vishal said.
"Today, I would say that yes, the next election in Tamil Nadu is going to be a game-changer. I am not talking as a politician here. I am talking as a representative of the people. I have seen things happen for the few years. I have been seeing people wanting a change," he said.
Asked who would make a successful leader among the stars including Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan who have planned to enter politics, he said their agendas have not been announced yet.
"It (Rajinikanth's announcement about political entry) is the first step. There are still more to come from him. Waiting for him to speak more," he said.
To a query, he said "it is the fascination to do good to people" that motivated Tamil film stars to become political leaders.
