Vadivelu recently filed a complaint with South Indian Artistes Association (Nadigar Sangam) against Singamuthu and Manobala for talking bad about him in a video interaction.
Following this, Manobala has publicly tendered an apology to Vadivelu. In an interaction with a YouTube channel, the filmmaker-actor has said that he doesn’t want to lose his friendship with Vadivelu.
Manobala has said he and Vadivelu have been friends for 30 years, and wondered why Vadivelu complained about him directly at Nadigar Sangam Association.
Stating that he was worried about the complaint, Manobala said that he had always been neutral in the industry. He then said that if his actions had hurt him, he would like to apologise for it.
Manobala has said that he is one of the people who have been waiting to see Vadivelu back on the big screens and requested the ace comedian to come back in films soon.
Manobala runs a YouTube channel named Waste Paper, where he interviews celebrities. In one such recent interaction, he interviewed Singamuthu, during which the latter discussed his issue with actor Vadivelu. Some of the comments made during the interview had not gone well with Vadivelu.
