Vadivelu might have taken many roles in his career. In all these roles, he dominated for a great share and won many acclaims. For the past one year or so, he is keeping aloof from the Kollywood activities. This is due to his political involvement for the then ruling party. With the party facing the worst debacle Vadivelu was sidelined by many producers for the fear of being victimized. The lone film in which he could depict was Thiagarajan’s Mambattiyan. In the meantime , Vadivelu is spending time meeting the press people often. In a recent interview he said he will make his second round soon and it will be the project having him as the hero. Now this humorist is on the fire from the US based Tamils who wanted to have him for the celebrations. Tamils Association in the US arranged for a film function in which they wanted Vadivelu to participate. He was generous to accept the invitation and the organizers were quite happy over it. However on confirmation, Vadivelu seemed to have demanded Rs25 lakhs for gracing his presence. This made the US Tamils irate and expressed the condemnation against him. They neglected his demand and planned to proceed with their program.
