Fans of the late legendary actor Vivekh are elated with the release of Amazon Prime Video's first-of-its-kind Tamil reality comedy series, LOL Enga Siri Paappom. The first season of the show, which was dropped recently, has brought smiles on their faces as the they got to enjoy the veteran comedian's unique expressions and hilarious one-liners again.
Vivekh, along with Shiva, co-hosted the series, which had Abishek and Pugazh emerging as winners. Venkat Prabhu, Shiva and Sathish were a few from Kollywood who had taken to social media to remember the comedian who was also known for his love for nature.

Filmmaker-turned-actor Gautham Menon is the latest to join the bandwagon. He took to Twitter to reveal that he had plans to make a film with Vivekh for an OTT platform. However, the actor had asked him to wait for his OTT debut, LOL Enga Siri Paappom. Gautham added that it was their last conversation. Along with the tweet, he posted a picture of Vivekh from the series and said that he had great fun watching the show. He remembered Chokku and Revolver Richard, too, the characters Vivekh played in his films Minnale and Yennai Arindhaal respectively.
Interestingly, a fan of the actor had made a poster last year on his social media account with the title 'Revolver Richard', which had Gautham's name under direction. The poster which went viral in no time was shared by the actor himself. The actor's last theatrical release was Dharala Prabhu (streaming on Amazon Prime Video), which had hit screens a few days before theatres were shut down in Tamil Nadu during the first lockdown. His portrayal of a doctor who runs a fertility clinic in the film had received appreciation from critics and audience alike. The actor was also seen in the teaser of Aranmanai 3 which was released recently.
