One of the most celebrated comedy and character artistes of Tamil cinema - Vaigai Puyal Vadivelu has been missing in action, for quite some time now! His last on screen appearance was in Thalapathy Vijay's Mersal, which was directed by Atlee. After playing character roles for long, Vadivelu turned into a hero and had quite a few releases. However, after an unsuccessful stint in politics, Vadivelu faced issues with the Tamil Nadu Producers Council after a dispute with the Imsai Arasan 24aam Pulikecei team. Though it has been rumoured for long that he would return to movies any time now, it has not materialised. Vadivelu and Vijay share a very good rapport and have worked in several films together. Vaigai Puyal has now issued statement on Vijay for his birthday.

The English translation to Vadivelu’s tweet is as follows: “From Rajavin Parvaiyile till the recent released Mersal, I have acted with you in several films. I have stood beside you throughout this journey and have seen both your highs and lows. You need to reach even greater heights that your name will resound as long as cinema industry survives. Happy Birthday my dear brother.” It was earlier reported that Vadivelu would be joining hands with Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan for his next project - Thalaivan Irukkindran! Just like thousands of Vadivelu's followers, we are also eagerly looking forward to once again seeing the Vaigai Puyal, back on screens.
