Hope for successful homecoming: Vadivelu
Chennai: Tamil comedian Vadivelu, who returns to acting after a hiatus of around two years with the comedy 'Thenali Raman', wishes for a flourishing homecoming and says he missed being busy.
"It is great to be back especially after a while. I wish to be as busy and successful as I was before in this homecoming," Vadivelu told IANS.
"My new film will be an out-and-out comedy and I will be seen in a double role. It is a period film and I will be essaying the roles of Krishnadevaraya and Thenali Raman," he said.
In a career spanning over two decades, Vadivelu has acted in over 200 Tamil films. In the last three years, he had only three releases.
"There used to be a time when I did 10 to 12 films in a year, but times have changed and I should change with it. This break happened for good and I don't wish to look back. I'd rather worry about entertaining audiences again," said Vadivelu.
He also played the lead in the Tamil period comedy-drama 'Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi', which is likely to have a sequel in the offing.
"There have been talks about a sequel, but nothing has been confirmed as of now. It was a special film and I would be glad to be part of the sequel," he added.
Having been out of action for some time, competition doesn't worry him.
"I've always had competition, and therefore it doesn't make a difference to me now," he said.
'Thenali Raman', which is being directed by Yuvaraj, will be produced by Kalpathi S. Aghoram.
