Who can forget the tremendous action of Vadivelu in 2006 historic comedy Imsai Arasan 23rd Pulikesi. The film is undoubtedly one of his best performances in the actor’s career. The sequel titled 24am Pulikesi went on the floors last August but the shoot has been halted due to some differences between Vadivelu and production team.
As per our sources, the reason behind differences between makers and Vadivelu came with the actor’s new condition that the film should not have a huge star cast, rejecting around 25 names and insisted on using his personal costume designer in the film.
A huge period set worth lakhs has been erected in Chennai’s EVP studio. But now, the stalling of the shoot could lead to a loss for the makers. Already director shanker who is producing this film approached the Producer’s Council. Now the producer’s council asked Vadivelu to either finish the shoot of the film or to give compensation to the makers. So It looks like Vadivelu is in deep trouble.
