Comedy in Tamil films has graduated to higher
levels thanks to comedians like Vivek, Vadivelu
and others. Generally Vivek appears in films
as a bosom buddy of the hero and will stand
by him in his fall and rise. In the forthcoming
Sivaji too, Vivek is slated to make his appearance
felt but this time as the maternal uncle of
the super star.
Readers may be aware that Tamil debate speaker Raja will
be donning the role of Shreya’s father in Sivaji.
Meanwhile, in the political arena too, Sivaji is said
to have created a slight hullabaloo and was the reason
for some heated debate in the Tami Nadu legislative assembly.
While discussing the tax waiver extended to films with
Tamil titles, Mr.Raman from Congress raised a question
if the name Sivaji was a Tamil word or not and whether
the film would enjoy the tax benefit. This has triggered
quite a disturbance in the session and Minister Paridi
Ilam Vazhudi was not too sure about the answer and replied
that he would get back to Mr.Raman after a while.
