Comedian Singamuthu is obviously on a high. The actor was put to task during the earlier regime when his contemporary Vadivelu filed cases against him and managed to get him arrested. As it turned out, the party Vadivelu campaigned for in the Assembly election bit the dust while Singamuthu’s party (the AIADMK and its allies) emerged victorious.
Many comedy sequences filmed in Vadivelu and Singamuthu’s combination have become huge hits among the masses, with Singamuthu contributing in equal measure in making the sequences and the film(s) succeed.
In the changed scenario, while Vadivelu is still looking for a break to return back to action in Tamil films, Singamuthu is said to be doing quite fine. The actor was recently shooting in Erode for a film when he was surrounded by press-persons. At that time, a scribe asked whether he had any plans of realigning with Vadivelu in future.
Singamuthu’s reply was spontaneous: “Does Vadivelu act in films anymore?” The reply stumped the scribes even as Singamuthu continued saying “Vadivelu doesn’t know anything about the basics of politics. He had always uttered the dialogues in films which were mostly penned by me and which made him famous!”
Looks like this rivalry might take a long time to re-unite!
