It was director Shankar who introduced comedy legend Vadivelu as a solo hero through his production venture Imsai Arasan 23 am Pulikesi. The political satire film, directed by Chimbu Devan, went on to become a huge hit. From then on Vadivelu tried to act in similar films and failed miserably. Last year, director Shankar announced that he is reuniting with Vadivelu for Imsai Arasan 24 am Pulikecei. However, the duo had a major fallout and the shooting of the film came to a standstill. Shankar approached Tamil Nadu Film Producers' Council (TFPC) to solve the issue. The latest buzz is that the actor has been banned from acting in Tamil films. Speculations are rife that the TFPC has requested all its members not to book Vadivelu for any of their films. It is said that the council had to take the tough decision after Vadivelu refused to reach an amicable solution for the ongoing issue.

Initially, the Producer's Council had asked Vadivelu to pay Rs 9 crore as compensation for the losses incurred because of his non-compliance. However, the Kaththi Sandai actor ignored the Council's order. Director Shankar paid a huge sum to Vadivelu as part of the remuneration. Further, huge sets were erected for the shooting. The actor refused to come to the shooting spot citing that the production house insulted his costume designer.[4]After several issue yogi babu has been casted as replacement for vadivelu.
