Sources close to ace comedian Vadivelu say that the beleaguered comedian is seriously ‘weighing’ the options of becoming a full-fledged member of the opposition DMK. Vadivelu campaigned intensely for the erstwhile ruling party in the Assembly elections held in April and during his campaign speeches, he took to task the DMDK chief Vijayakanth and commented about him almost at will.
As it turned out, the DMK lost miserably in the elections; as a result, Vadivelu’s position has become untenable as he now faces the wrath of the activists of DMDK who have been bolstered by the victory of their party, which allied with Amma’s ADMK in the elections. Vadivelu has been facing harassment in various forms, it is said. This has added to his already terrible position where he finds himself out of work in Kollywood with not a single film on his hands.
Vadivelu has been confining himself to his Madurai residence for the past few days, apparently contemplating his next move. Unable to bear the harassment by DMDK volunteers, Vadivelu is reportedly considering the option of formally joining the DMK (like actress Khushboo did last year) so as to take on his rivals ‘politically’.
Vadivelu is said to be particularly unhappy about the fact that though he remains confined to his residence, the volunteers are still ‘abusing him’ verbally by using ‘unparliamentary language’ (like he himself did during the elections). Pushed to a corner, he is now a the crossroads of his career where not long ago, he was the leading comedian in Kollywood.
Finally, there is some good news on the professional front for Vadivelu as he would be starring in a new film titled ‘Ulagam’ where he would be appearing in 25 different get-ups (isn’t it too much?). He hopes to bounce back with this film in a big way.
