For 'Traffic', Vishal had to shoot an extremely difficult accident scene which was both emotionally and physically draining for Bollywood's new debut actor. Consequently, the actor also blacked out post the shoot of this scene.

Vishal said, "I was extremely nervous before shooting for this scene. The shot required me to somersault and spin in the air, at a height of about 4 floors of a building. The crew member who demonstrated the same, suffered a serious head injury. This freaked me out all the more. After a lot of convincing and encouragement from the director and the other members of the team, I finally went ahead and gave it my best shot, despite my phobia of heights. However, post the scene I completely blacked out. The shot was draining both emotionally and physically and I am glad to have pulled this off in the first take itself."

The actor will be seen in the movie 'Traffic' which is set to release this Friday, 6th May, 2016. The movie also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Jimmy Shergill and Divya Dutta in key roles. Vishal plays the role of an ambitious journalist in the movie.
