Vadivelu plays the titular character Maamannan in the Mari Selvaraj project. The director had stated at an event that if Vadivelu hadn't come on board, he would have shelved the project. He stated that when he explained his concern to Udhayanidhi, he was more than ready to oblige. Udhayanidhi had jocularly stated that Vadivelu's performance has dominated the scenes in such a way that he has sidelined all the other actors.
"While Fahadh will be running helter skelter on screen, Keerthy (Suresh) and I will be here and there on screen. There are high chances of Vadivelu getting an award for the film."
Interestingly, Maamannan marks Udhayanidhi Stalin's last project as an actor. Soon after he took charge as Minister for Youth Welfare and Sports Development of Tamil Nadu, Udhayanidhi announced his retirement from films.
