Dhanush is one hero in Kollywood who has never depended on the two kings of comedy Vivek or Vadivel to piggy back ride on. He has done 13 films so far but has never been paired with these two top comedians of Tamil cinema.
Remember that in all his films, Dhanush has done comedy himself or had little known comedians with him. So when Vadivel was signed up in his latest film Padikkathavan it was news. But now the twist in the tale is that Vadivel has been dropped by the unit like a hot potato as “he was too difficult to handle”.
In fact Vadivel, the highest paid comedian ( Rs 7 Lakhs per day!) shot for two days in Hyderabad when he started throwing his weight with director Suraaj. A source close to the unit say that Vadivel was unhappy about the comedy track written for him with Dhanush including a scene which had the hero beating him.
After all, how can the king of comedy get beaten by a young hero when he says that superstars like Rajnikanth and Vijay waits for his dates, pleads with him to come on time and is treated like a hero himself on their sets! It seems on the Padikkathavan sets, Vadivel openly shouted at the director and asked his Chamchas to write his lines, which saw the hero and the unit see red.
And the latest news is that director Suraaj has decided to replace Vadivel with Vivek who is his arch rival. Vivek who is also busy has given immediate dates and is all excited to replace Vadivel and be a part of a Dhanush film for the first time.
