Actor - comedian Vivekh breathed his last in the early hours of April 17 and his mortal remains is currently kept at his residence for the public and film fraternity members to pay their final respect. He died due to a cardiac arrest and his demise has definitely broken the hearts of the people of Tamil Nadu. Vivekh's loss will be irreplaceable for Tamil cinema and it is very rare to see a comedian of his stature. Vivekh was not only a comedian but also a good hearted human being who was always concerned about society. He will be widely remembered for planting lakhs and lakhs of trees across Tamil Nadu. Vivekh who has acted in over 220 films, is a recipient of Padma Shri honour, awarded by the Indian Government.

He was last seen playing an important role in Harish Kalyan's Dharala Prabhu, directed by Krishna Marimuthu. Vivekh acted in the character of Dr. Kannadasan and his performance received highly positive reviews from the critics and the audience. Up next, Vivekh has three important films lined up for release.

The first one happens to be Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi's Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir. Padmashri Dr. Vivekh will be seen playing a crucial role in Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir and we got to see a glimpse of his character in the film's recently released trailer. Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir is in post production stages and it is expected to release in theatres very soon. Going by the progress, Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir will be Vivekh's first release after his death. The film which is directed by debutant Venkata Krishna Roghanth, features Megha Akash, Riythvika, Magizh Thirumeni, Mohan Raja, Kaniha, and others in supporting roles. Vivekh will also be seen in a pivotal character in Legend Saravanan's debut film as a lead actor. This yet to be titled film is directed by JD - Jerry. We had recently seen pictures of Vivekh from the film's shooting which took place at Manali.

The biggest and the highly expected project happens to be Shankar's Indian 2. Vivekh has already shot for some of his portions in the film and we will have to wait for a few more months to get better clarity. Will Shankar use someone else to dub for Vivekh's character or will the character be removed from the movie? Indian 2 is currently put on hold due to various reasons and let us hope that the film sees the light of day, for Vivekh. As of now, Vivekh's upcoming line up of films include Vijay Sethupathi's Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir, Legend Saravanan's untitled film, and Kamal Haasan's Indian 2.
