Vadivelu started his innings as a leading man with Chimbu Devan’s Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi. The film was a hit however his subsequent movies as hero were not as successful. After a hiatus he made a comeback in Vishal’s Kaththi Sandai. He is also playing an important role in Vijay’s upcoming film Mersel.

Director Shankar had earlier announced the sequel to Imsai Arasan. The film is in pre production and will be jointly bankrolled by Shankar’s S Pictures and Lyca Productions. Reports say that Vadivelu who was seen in a double role in the original will be doing a triple role in the sequel. A yet to be released picture from a look test where Vadivelu is seen sporting a wig much like Victorian gentlemen has been doing rounds on the Internet. Whether this is in connection to the movie is still unknown.

Also in doubt is Chimbu Devan’s involvement in the sequel. Official details regarding the cast and crew is awaited.
