Vivek, who is considered as arch rival to Vadivelu, has surprisingly wished him. As the latter's film Thenaliraman is getting ready for the release, the former took to Twitter to pray for the success of the Tamil flick.
"Gm tweeples! Letz all pray for the smooth release of Thenaliramann a great success which shd make the producer n trade ppl happy," Vivek tweeted. His post surprised quite a few as the actors are considered as rivals.
People welcomed his statement and thanked Vivek for encouraging Vadivelu, who badly needs a hit to boost his career prospects.
Vadivelu and Vivek may not have had any issue in the public, but it was often reported that they had a kind of battle at one time to be the top comedian in Kollywood. Moreover, their political affiliations with different parties had often fueled rumour mills about their cold war. While Vivek is close to the ruling AIADMK, Vadivelu had links with the DMK.
However, Vadivelu is getting ready for the acid test coming Friday (April 18) as Thenali is hitting the screens. It is his comeback movie after two years and he has pinned high hopes on the Tamil flick. It is directed by Yuvaraj Dhayalan and produced by Kalpathi S Aghoram. Meenakshi Dixit is the female lead.
