Ilayathilagam Prabhu who ruled as a leading hero in the eighties and nineties is still much loved by fans in his stint as a much sought-after character actor. The younger son of the legendary Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan has used the lockdown free time to slim down considerably in preparation for his role in Mani Ratnam’s ‘Ponniyin Selvan’.

Prabhu recently surprised fans with his latest photo and many have been opining on social media that he can act as a hero right now. The hot update is that the veteran has been roped in to play an important character in ‘Vishal 32’.

‘Vishal 32’ stars Vishal in the lead and is produced by his close friend’s actors Ramana and Nandha. Sunainaa plays the female lead and the team already completed the first schedule. Now the second has begun and Prabhu has got on board. Vishal has shared screenspace with Prabhu in two earlier movies ‘Thaamirabharani’ and ‘Aamabala’ and this is the third time.
