Vivek plays a baddie in Vazhipokkan, a film that is being made in Tamil and Kannada. This sudden transition from comedian to villain has raised a query on why the actor opted for it. Answering this question, Vivek said that when the role was offered to him, he felt that he must do it.
The role is etched out very differently and it will be impossible for the audiences to guess the character, said Vivek. The comedian added that he always wanted to try out something new and this opportunity came up with Vazhipokkan.
