    All of a sudden, Vadivelu starrer film Indiralogathil Naa Azhagappan has been dropped by its producer. After the stupendous success of Imsai Arasan, Vadivelu has pouring in the offers to act as hero in many Tamil films. Finally he accepted only one - Indira Logathil Naa Azhagappan produced by V.Rajagopal. V. Krishnamurthy was announced to be its director. There was a heavy competition among lady artists as to who will adorn the shoulders of this comedian turned hero. Glamour dolls of the tinsel world like Shilpa Shetty, Simran, Mallika Sherawat and even Nayanthara were alleged to be considered for the heroine role. Almost six crores was said to be agreed upon as the remuneration for Vadivelu for this film. The producer already delivered hot cash about Rs. 25 lakhs as advance to this comedian.

    But the film hit a roadblock. Sources say that the financier had refused to fund the film due to some remarks of Vadivelu about the project. It is said one day the financier of the film contacted Vadivelu and wanted to confirm him playing the lead role. He said that he would like to get the approval of Vadivelu before he finances the film. The comedian thought that the financier indirectly implied that he was a surety for his investment.

    The Madurai Puyal immediately replied, "Please finance the film if you have trust the producer and the director. I am, after all, an actor. Don't decide whether or not to finance the film on my reputation and status. Don't consider me the guarantee for your investment in the film " After this, for some mysterious reasons, the financier suddenly refused to fund the film which has resulted in the shelving of the project. Vadivelu had allotted a call sheet of seventy days to this film, out of which twenty days have been wasted. Now talks are going on to take back his advance amount.
