In the race of sporting new looks, Comedian Vivek has beaten leading heroes. He is sporting a Trans-gender role in upcoming Sundar C’s Murattu Kaalai remake movie.
Even when doing the character Vivek has displayed it with reverence to the transgender community. He has exposed many of their problems with sympathy. His character is called ‘Mayilu’ which is taken from ’16 Vayathinile’.
Says Vivek, ” It’s my 23rd year in films and I am thrilled that my role has an importance right upto the climax. I am donning the transgender role in this movie. I have sported a glamorous look, without vulgarity.
Transgender is usually referred by a number between 8 and 10. In the movie, there is a scene where I say, ‘You buy cars with number 9. You worship navagrahams and you like navarathnams. So, why do you call us with the same number 9 and see us as low human beings?’. I have raised my voice in support of transgender people in this movie”.
The remake of the Rajinikanth superhit Murattu Kaalai has Sundar C in the pivotal role played by Rajini while Sindhu Tolani and Sneha are his co-stars. A grand audio function was held recently, in which the CM, M Karunanidhi launched the music which was received by Chiyaan Vikram.
