Vadivelu started doing character comic roles after a long time. He tested the waters with Vishal’s Kaththi Sandai. The actor will now be seen in a full fledged role in Vijay 61.

The actor has already completed a 30 days schedule in Europe and will shoot for another 15 days. The film also stars Sathayan and Yogi Babu in comic roles. Apparently Vijay and Atlee are big fans of Vadivelu and reminisce his old comedy tracks during breaks. This has propelled the actor to do even better.

Vijay 61’s title and first is expected on June 22. The film stars Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menon, Sathyaraj, Kovai Sarala and S J Suryah in lead roles. The film is directed by Atlee and is bankrolled by Thenandal Films. The film will hit screens this Diwali.
