Recently he was in the news vying for a positive change in the ‘Nadigar Sangam’ infrastructure, and now he can be seen participating in the struggle to save street dogs across India.

With the state government passing order to slaughter rabid and violent dogs to protects its citizens, several animal rights activists protested and voiced their dissent. Joining the crowd, Vishal has announced he will join in the hunger strike to be held at Valluvar Kottam in Chennai, organised by the ‘People for Cattle in India’.

The actor said, “I am participating as a dog lover. I wanted to raise my voice against the killing of stray dogs. The main slogans of this event will be 'stop cruelty to animals' and 'stop killing dogs in Kerala'.”
