Vadivelu has managed to get re-entry acting career with the help of Vishal and his team.
Though he is now in Kollywood, it was Atlee, director for Vijay starer Theri, who tried to give opportunity to him through that movie.
Atlee (original name Arun Kumar) tried Vadivelu because both are from Madurai. But it is said that Vadivelu demanded Rs 4 crores for the movie on which Atlee gave the opportunity to Parotta Soori, who too hails from Madurai.
Understanding the love, affection and respect Atlee had on him, Vadivelu called up Atlee himself and has accepted to do a movie for him at the salary Atlee and the producer can afford.
