After Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan paid their tributes to Vivekh, producer Boney Kapoor paid his respect to the late actor-comedian. The Tamil actor died on Saturday morning, a day after he was admitted to a hospital in Chennai after a cardiac arrest. On Friday, Vivek underwent an emergency coronary angiogram and angioplasty after he was found to have a 100% blockage in his left coronary artery.
Boney took to Twitter and shared a rare picture of Sridevi and Vivekh. He also revealed that it was the late Sridevi who introduced Boney to the comedian’s work. “My wife @sridevibkapoor was a big fan of actor Vivek she had got me hooked to his hilarious acts. Your presence and humour will be missed by all. I pray for strength to his family at this difficult time. #RIPVivek,” he tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Rajnikanth remembered the actor and said, “Jr Kalaivanar, social activist, and my close friend, Vivek. His demise has caused me a lot of pain. I can never forget the time I shared with him during the making of Sivaji. My deep condolences to his family. Let his soul rest in peace.”
Kamal called Vivekh a friend and said that he ‘always worked for the betterment of the community as a disciple of Kalam, and guardian of the trees.’ He noted that his death is a ‘great loss to the Tamil community.’
Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan also remembered the actor. “Huge admirer of his work and sheer genius. We’ve lost a legend today. My condolences to Vivek sir’s family, friends and fans. #RIPVivekSir,” he tweeted.
Vivekh began his acting career in 1987. He was introduced by director K Balachander. The actor went on to star in movies like Sivaji: The Boss, Anniyan and Bigil.
