In an interaction with cricketer Dinesh Karthik and Basu Shanker on Film Companion, director Vetrimaaran revealed that he is a big fan of Vadivelu and has been watching a lot of his comedy scenes. "I think after Sivaji Ganesan, Vadivelu is an original actor in Tamil cinema", said Vetrimaaran.
While the filmmaker serious films and known for not roping in regular comedy actors, it's a surprise to know that he is a big fan of Vadivelu. The maverick director also says that he is also watching Vijay TV's Kalakapovathu Yaaru, a popular comedy reality show.
Vetrimaaran's next two films are with Soori and Suriya respectively. Soori's film is based on Meeran Mitheen's novel Ajnabi and Suriya's film is based on Chellapa's acclaimed novel Vaadi Vaasal.
