Vadivelu is a popular comedian in Tamil, who is a household name in Telugu as well through his dubbed movies. Vadivelu started the career as a sidekick to the popular comedian duo Goundamani-Senthil. After playing small roles, he rose to prominence with Shankar’s “Kadalan” which got dubbed in Telugu as “Premikudu”.
The film was a massive hit and Vadivelu’s career took off as a leading comedian henceforth and there was no looking back. Apart from being a comedian, Vadivelu played the lead role in the blockbuster “Imsai Arasan 23 am Pulikesi” (2006) (dubbed in Telugu as “Himsinche 23va Raju Pulikesi “) where he played a dual role of twins. His next movie in a lead role was Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan (2008), which was, however, a big failure.
