Vivek honoured with Padmashree
14 persons from Tamil Nadu including top Tamil comedian Vivek, have been conferred with the Padmashree award this year by the Government of India.

Vivek said it was a "true honour" to get the Padmashree

A visibly happy Vivek said: "I think this is a recognition of my attempts to include social messages in my comedy tracks in various films. I have touched on various issues in different films - the subject of environment pollution, global warming, dowry harassment, female infanticide, unemployment, conservation of energy etc."

He dedicated the award to his parents, mentor and guru director K.Balachandar and all his fans who made him famous. Vivek also had a word of praise for his role model the legendary comedian N.S Krishnan.
