Vivekh joins the cast of Jolly LLB remake

The remake of Jolly LLB, directed by Ahmed, which has Udhayanidhi, Hansika and Prakash Raj in the lead, is all set to kick-start next week. The latest to join the cast of the film is Vivekh and we hear that he will be playing the role of Udhayanidhi’s uncle in the film.

A source close to the unit says, “Even though it is usually Santhanam who teams up with Udhayanidhi, this time Vivekh has been brought on board. Moreover, the script didn’t call for a character for Santhanam, and the team felt that Vivekh will be apt for this pivotal character. However, the role is not exactly that of a comedian. Udhay and Ahmed will start shooting from August 27 for this film in Chennai.”
