Murthy, the director of successful films such as Karuppasamy Kuthagaitharar and Vedigundu Murugesan, has just launched his third film as a director. Though both the films did reasonably well at the box-office, he had to toil it out for more than two years in search of his next.
Changing his name from Murthy to Govinda Murthy, he is now directing Pappali which has television actor-turned-hero Senthil and newcomer Ishara essaying lead roles. For the comedian’s role in the film, Murthy obviously wanted to cast Vadivelu as Vadivelu’s comedy tracks were huge successes in his earlier films.
However, when Murthy tried to get in touch with Vadivelu, he met with no success at all as the cellphone of the actor remained ‘switched off’ though he tried several times. After getting to know that Vadivelu was in Madurai, Murthy made another attempt to get in touch with the ace comedian. He could still not talk to him and has now roped in Singam Puli in place of Vadivelu.
Vadivelu is trying for a come back would certainly not want this to be a costly miss.
