Kollywood celebrities continue to visit the late actor Vivek's residence to pay their last respects, those who can't attend are sharing condolence messages and videos on social media.

Vadivelu, one of the most influential Tamil comedians of our times, reacted to Vivek's unexpected demise via video as he's held up in Madhurai and can't attend the funeral. Here's what he said:

Vadivelu and Vivek ruled Kollywood as the kings of comedy for years before their film offers started declining in the early 2010s. Both Vadivelu and Vivek had acted together in many films in the past. Despite being professional rivals, the stars have always maintained mutual respect.

In the past, Vivek acknowledged Vadivelu's unshakeable hold over the meme world and his influence on meme creators. It's heart-breaking that these two titans will never again clash on-screen.
