One of the most popular and successful comedians in Tamil cinema Vadivelu is going to be back in front of the camera after a two year forced sabbatical.

The king of comedy is going to shoot from Monday (May 20) for a film with a long title Gaja Buja Buja Gaja Tenali Ramanum Krishnadevarayarum  (GBBGTR)!

For the period drama a huge set has been put up at AVM Studios.  Tenali Raman is being directed by Yuvaraj who last did Potta Potti.  The film is produced by one of the leading production houses AGS Entertainment.

Vadivelu lost his numero uno comedian status when he dabbled in Tamil Nadu assembly elections of 2011. The comedian became a platform speaker and drew huge crowds campaigning for DMK, but ended up with egg on his face.

Now the comedian who was shunted out by Kollywood is making a comeback through Tenali Raman and trying to regain his lost clout.
