Earlier the films including Sachin, Kaavalan and Sura which had the comedy combination of Vijay and Vadivelu worked out very well and had good openings.After this Vijay wanted to cast Vadivelu in Puli and Theri but since Vadivelu had a principle that he would don only lead roles, this did not materialize.
Vadivelu should have acted in Mottai Rajendran role in Theri. Since Vadivelu has decided to act in comedian roles, he was signed for Vijay’s 61. Atlee has taken 20 days callsheet from Vadivelu. So far Atlee has shot the portions pertaining to father Vijay. Now he will be shooting portions pertaining Vijay who is donning roles of 2 sons. While Vadivelu is friend with one Vijay, Sathyan will be donning the role of another Vijay friend.
It is understood that the comedy sequences pertaining to Vadivelu and Vijay will be rib tickling. Both of them plan to kidnap a certain person but they kidnap the wrong person and ends up in a great problem. It seems that this kind of comedy has never appeared earlier in Vijay’s film.
