Vishal Jethwa of *Mardaani 2* fame is back with his second film, and this time, he will play a role completely different and diverse from his villainous turn in the Rani Mukerji starrer. Jethwa will act as Venkatesh, in *Salaam Venky,* co-starring Kajol and directed by Revathy. Once again he will work with a super talented actress in a relevant social drama.

Salaam Venky features Jethwa as Venkatesh, a patient who survived Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative disease, upturning doctor*s predictions of his survival chances, and making impact in the Indian legal system around organ donation. Speaking about the film, he said, "I was very excited to hear that I could get a chance to work with Kajol ma*am When I went in for the narration, I was moved to see just how emotional our writer got while telling us the story. I am very close to my mother. When I realised that this is a mother-son story about surviving against impossible odds, I was immediately on-board. It is a chance to portray another side of my persona in this role."

He added *I am one of the lucky actors to have had a chance to work with both Rani ma*am and Kajol ma*am, contemporaries and cinema legends in their own right. I consider this a stroke of good luck and I am very happy to have got an opportunity to showcase my acting mettle in front of such talented actresses.*
