We all know how Vadivelu campaigned in the elections.
Despite being a senior artist in the film field, the actor showed little interest in what others thought of him while wielding the mike hitting uncontrollably at opponent parties. One of the main target was politico-actor Vijayakanth. But all this was during the election propaganda and before the election results were announced.
Post the election results none of us have heard much about the whereabouts of the comedian who so boldly and vociferously took to the dais during the elections. Not only did Vadivelu lose his stand among the audience but he also lost some good roles in films that came his way.
One such was his role in Superstar’s period venture, ‘Rana.’ Superstar, who was upset with Vadivelu’s criticizing comments on Vijayakanth saw to it that he was out of the ‘Rana’ bandwagon. But after the elections when superstar came to know that Vadivelu was in a pitiable predicament and had lost out many films due to his election misdemeanor, he seems to have had a word with director K.S. Ravikumar and the duo have decided to take Vadivelu on board the film.
When they decided to remove Vadivelu off the project Ganja Karuppu was given the role offered to Vadivelu. Now Vadivelu will be in the ‘Rana’s cast along with Ganja Karuppu!
It definitely is a silver lining for the comedian who had almost made his life a comedy due to his statements…
