Tamil film industry blacklists comedian Vadivelu

It seems like actor Vadivelu’s problems are far from over. The Producers Council has requested all its members in the Tamil film industry to not cast the popular comedian in their films in future. The ban on Vadivelu is the result of his alleged non-cooperation to sort out the differences with the makers of Imsai Arasan 24am Pulikesi.


Comedy requires more creativity than a thriller or a regular role: Shreyas Talpade

“Why do you want to stop seeing Shreyas in comedy,” questions actor Shreyas Talpade, who has delivered stellar performances in films such as Iqbal and Dor, but has somewhat been boxed into the role of a comic actor over the last few years. “There was a time when I used to think that I don’t want to get stereotyped into a certain genre and I refused to do a few films. I was told by the makers of Jolly LLB that I refused the film, though I don’t remember saying no to it. However, over time I have realised that I enjoy doing comedy. It requires more creativity than a thriller or a regular role. The challenge for me is that while doing comedy, I need people to accept me as a serious actor, which they already know I am,” says he.
