As an emotional tribute to Padma Shri actor and comedian Late Vivek, superstar Suriya and Amazon Prime Video shared a video commemorating the comic faithful of the Tamil film industry. The actor performs the role of judge in Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming original comedy reality show ‘LOL: Enga Siri Paappom’.
The video pays homage to him and captures him in his trademark style – full of laughter, whimsical and witty jokes.
Suriya, who has worked with Vivek in several blockbuster films such as Singam 1 & 2, Maattrraan, Perazhagan among many others, shared the tribute video and wrote a heartfelt message to his deceased colleague who said he will always be missed and will live forever (remain) in our hearts. He went on to say that he is honored to share Vivek Sir’s latest work with fans.
The video honestly refers to him as ‘Chinna Kalaivanar’ and shows respect for the actor who made the audience laugh and entertain them for decades. The tribute video captures live his journey in LOL: Enga Siri Paappom and shows him in his signature swag and style that he has always been known for.
The video ends with a touching note that resonates with fans’ wishes everywhere and says’ Ungal sirippu endrum olikkattum ‘. (May his laughter echo forever).
‘LOL: Enga Siri Paappom’ was actor Vivek’s last project in the comedy-reality space, where he played host and judge alongside renowned actor Shiva and interacted closely with ten comedy entertainers from the Tamil film industry.
