When this correspondent asked Vadivel about his opinion on remixes, he commented in his typical style, "We all grown up with the mesmerizing tunes of MSV and our musical genius Illayaraaja. Particularly, I'm one of the diehard fans of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR. In my earlier days, l delved with the style and excellent onscreen looks of MGR in Thottal Poo Malarum song. But when I saw the remix of the classic in other film, I really felt sorry for that."

It is really a bad trend and great insult to the genius, we celebrated for years. Whoever it may be, I request them please stop this trend. I came to know that most of the poets like Vaali, Pulamai Pithan and others also conveyed their anguish against the remix culture," he added.
Questioned about his differing opinion with the other MGR follower Sathyaraj, the ace comedian says, "It is my own view. I don't like to comment anything on my friend Sathyaraj's opinion on remix culture. But I don't like the remix in any form. New or existing composers should come with their own tunes."
