You might have read recently that Vivek is doing a negative character in a Tamil-Kannada bilingual, titled ‘Vazhipokkan’. The leading comedian has now come out with an explanation on the reason behind his decision.
“Many ask me why I have turned a villain all of a sudden. I thought that my character in Vazhipokkan and its script are different and interesting. So I accepted the role without any hesitation,” he says.
Sharing the screen space with Vivek in ‘Vazhipokkan’ is Mithun Tejaswi, who is also producing the film. It may be recalled that both had worked together earlier in ‘Magane En Marumagane’,a comedy drama film written and directed by TP Gajendran.
In the meantime, Vivek is busy with his social responsibility programs. Recently, he launched Green Kalam’s website, and urged youngsters to involve themselves in planting trees, to fight the ill effects of global warming.
