The combination of Vadivelu and Vijay, which had earlier rocked in films such as Friends, Bagawathi, Sachein, Kaavalan and Sura, is back in Vijay’s upcoming untitled film directed by Atlee Kumar.
Vadivelu made an unsuccessful comeback to films by playing an uncharacteristic ‘second-string’ comedian in Vishal’s Kaththi Sandai which released in December last year. Vadivelu’s fans were clearly and thoroughly upset with his role in the film. Vadivelu, in an apparent effort to compensate, has now played the lead comedian in Raghava Lawrence’s upcoming film Shivalinga.
In the meantime, it is said that Vadivelu would be starring alongside Vijay in Atlee’s untitled new film whose shoot had already commenced. A crew member said that Vadivelu was to star in Atlee’s last year’s Vijay-starrer Theri but lost out at the very last moment due to some inexplicable reasons.
Vadivelu reportedly plays a prominent role in the film and would have sequences with Vijay, it is reported.
