Chennai, Dec 25 (IANS) Ace comedian Vadivelu is not a part of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming Tamil science-fiction action-thriller “2.o”, contrary to reports.
If a source close to Vadivelu is to be believed, he wasn’t even approached for a role in the project.
“The rumour started when he was misquoted by the press. He had said he’s waiting for filmmaker Shankar to complete ‘2.o’ so that he can commence work on ‘Imsai Arasan 2’ in his production. It was assumed that he is a part of ‘2.o’, which is not true,” the source told IANS.
Shankar had produced Vadivelu’s 2006 Tamil comedy “Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi”, and will also be bankrolling its sequel.
Having made a comeback with latest Tamil release “Kaththi Sandai”, Vadivelu will next be seen in Vijay’s yet-untitled 61st Tamil outing.
He also has a yet-untitled Tamil comedy film with actor-composer G.V. Prakash Kumar.
