He began with a small role in ‘Manadhil Urudhi Vendum.’ He was introduced by the famous K. Balachander. We are discussing Vivek, an actor who has laughed his way in to the hearts of his millions of fans. He began his stint with minor roles way back in 1986 and now after 25 fantastic years has a stable, unshakable place in Tamil cinema as well as in the hearts of the people of Tamil Nadu.
The actor revealed that he was 25 years old in Tamil cinema during the audio launch of his upcoming film ‘Mappillai’ starring Dhanush and Hansika Motwani. Vivek’s previous film with Dhanush was ‘Padikadhavan’ and the comedy track in the film was received very well. The best part of Vivek’s comedy is that the actor beautifully infuses contemporary issues in his comedy also providing a solution which goes right into the mind of the viewer and makes him think.
He is rightly called the present day “Kalaivannar” Vivek has also done a full length film titled ‘Magane En Marumagane’ as a hero, which sees the actor as a hero with a huge dollop of comedy. We also informed you previously that he will be delivering a speech at the IIS campus Bangaluru on April 15.
Way to go Vivek! We hope you rule the comedy world and celebrate your 50th anniversary in Tamil cinema!
