Kollywood's top comedian Vadivelu who's all set to make a comeback to the film industry got diagnosed with Covid-19 recently. The actor visited London for the pre-production work of his upcoming movie 'Nai Sekhar Returns' and was tested positive for the infectious disease at the airport screening upon his return.

Besides Vadivelu, the movie's director Suraj was also tested positive for Covid-19 and was seeking treatment at a private hospital. Meanwhile, the other crews who were in close contact with them underwent quarantine and Covid-19 testing.

Now almost a week later, actor Vadivelu has been discharged from the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre in Porur. The doctor who gave treatment to Vadivelu said that he has recovered completely and his stay in the hospital was uneventful.
