Comedian Vadivelu has been undergoing a tough phase in his career. After the changed political scenario in the State the veteran has almost been sidelined with fresh faces bagiing the big opportunities. 11 long months without a single release, he made some sort of comeback through Thiagarajan’s Mambattiyan.
But Vadivelu defended his stand saying he was never boycotted from movies and the 11 month dry spell was a well thought decision, in need of some rest. He even went ahead and called himself a clown who does have his share of problems like any other human being or for that matter his loyal fans who clap to his antics with each release. After taking enough rest Vadivelu is hopeful of a return with Dhanush’s big budget Mareesan. He has been approached to add in the comic touch for this new project, worth a staggering 30 crores. Mareesan – a 12th century period flick will be directed by Chimbudevan and actress Genelia D’souza will be starring opposite her Uthama Puthiran – Dhanush for the lead pair. Composer GV Prakash will score the music for the flick with Kathir handling the camera. The Director is in talks with Ravichandran of Aascar Films and if things go well the project will be announced soon.
Vadivelu we wish you all the best 🙂
