Chennai: Ace comedian Vadivelu is not a part of superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming Tamil science-fiction action-thriller "2.o", contrary to reports.
If a source close to Vadivelu is to be believed, he wasn't even approached for a role in the project.
Shankar had produced Vadivelu's 2006 Tamil comedy "Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi", and will also be bankrolling its sequel.
Having made a comeback with latest Tamil release "Kaththi Sandai", Vadivelu will next be seen in Vijay's yet-untitled 61st Tamil outing.
He also has a yet-untitled Tamil comedy film with actor-composer G.V. Prakash Kumar.
