Vivekh has ventured to do a role with negative shades in Marichaa, a Kannada film. A name to reckon with in Tamil cinema, he has acted as comedian in several hundred films.
Asked whether he would venture to do the lead role, Vivekh says, ' I want to remain as comedian because comedy is an important ingredient of a film. No audience goes to toilet when a comedian appears on the screen. The audience goes to toilet or for smoking if they do not like a stunt sequence or song sequence'.
Asked about his ambition, the veteran comedian says, ' I want to complete green mission set by former president APJ Abdul Kalam who had advised me to encourage the planting of saplings. He advised me to promote the planting of saplings through films. As per his advice, I have joined hands with various non-governmental organisations. The planting of saplings programme began six months ago. The target was to plant 10 lakhs saplings but we have planted 11 lakh saplings. Kalam Sir will plant twelfth lakh sapling at a tsunami hit village near Kadalur by end of January 2012'.
