Not just Vadivelu, but the names of the characters he act too are known for evoking laughter. Kaipulla of ‘Winner’, Naai Sekar of ‘Thalainagaram’, Vandu Murugan of ‘Ellam Avan Seyal’ and Deepavali of ‘Kacheri Aarambam’ are to name a few.
The comedian is all set to continue the act in ‘Sura’, the 50th film of Vijay, too. For reliable sources close to the movie’s unit say the actor is doing the role of a carefree fisherman, whose name is ‘Umbrella’.
“There is a reason in the movie why Vadivelu’s name is ‘Umbrella’. He plays a close friend of Vijay in this film. The scenes involving Vijay and Vadivelu would surely bring the house down,” sources add.
Vijay and Vadivelu had acted together in many films in the past, with ‘Vaseegara’, ‘Sachin’, ‘Pokkiri’ and ‘Bhagavathi’ being the memorable ones. Likewise, the comedian shares a very good rapport with Sura’s director S P Rajakumar, who had wielded the megaphones for films like ‘En Purushan Kuzhandhai Madhiri’ and ‘Azhagarmalai’.
