Vivek @ Vivekanandhan, 59, [1961-2021]. Tamil Iconic Comedy Actor has died of a heart attack.

Vivek, Kollywood Comedy Legend

The Tamil movie industry is in mourning, grieving over the sudden death of Vivek @ Dr. Padma Shri Vivekanandhan, [19th November 1961-17th April 2021] on Saturday, 17th April, 2021 of a Cardiac Arrest.


Actor Vivek received the Padma Shri Award from the Government of India for his immense contributions to the arts. Sathyabama University conferred on him a honorary doctorate for his contribution to the society. 

He was a highly intelligent Indian film actor, comedian, television personality, playback singer and social activist working in the Tamil film industry. 

He was also the one who interviewed the late Indian President Allahyarham A.P. J. Abdul Kalam.


Vivek as he was popularly known had been vaccinated with COVAXIN, recently to thwart Coronavirus. Whether he had the heart attack due to the vaccine is being hotly debated by his millions of fans and fellow Tamil movie industry creatives and only Allah the Almighty knows as to the actual cause of his death.


Those who know Tamil will surely applaud Vivek's amazing talent in using his awesome comedic spoofs in recreating legendary scenes from the legendary Tamil cinema superstar Sivaji Ganesan's iconic court scene in his Parasakthi movie.


Vivek was to Indian Cinema what Robin Williams was to Hollywood. The difference was that Robin Williams at times was known to be vulgar in his jokes but Padma Shri Dr. Vivek was a decent and highly intelligent, Indian film comedy superstar.


He even accomplished outstanding representations of what Tamil Laureate Vairamuthu's highest level of Tamil speech was in his iconic dramatizations on stage. What an eloquent actor, Vivek was! Simply superb.


Above is his performance on stage during the Indian Cinema's 100- year celebration. He performed superbly and delivered one of the best Tamil comedy acts where amongst his audience included superstars Kamalahasan and Rajnikanth and all other Kollywood legends.


Death

On 15 April 2021, Vivek publicly received a dose of Covaxin, a COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Indian company Bharat Biotech, at the Tamil Nadu Government Multi Super Speciality Hospital, a government-run public hospital in Chennai

He campaigned for the benefits of vaccination and discouraged stigma toward public hospitals, as private hospitals in Tamil Nadu are often perceived as safer than their public counterparts.

The following day, he experienced breathlessness and chest pain. He was admitted to SIMS Hospital in Chennai, where doctors deemed him critical and revealed that he had 100% blockage in the left anterior descending artery which caused a cardiogenic shock

Speculation that his illness and death was linked to the vaccine was dismissed by the hospital.[39][40] 

Following an angioplasty, he died in hospital on 17 April 2021 at the age of 59.[41] 

He was given a state funeral amidst large crowds near his residence in Virugambakkam, Chennai.[42]


The world has lost another legendary actor. The Tamil Cinema world is in mourning. Innalillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun.

Roslan Madun ~ Seniman Warisan Asli Kesultanan Melayu Pahang Darul Makmur. KPKK ~ JKKN peduli ke?

Kat Malaysia ni, ada tabi'at buruk di peringkat Kementerian Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan atau Jabatan Kebudayaan & Kesenian Negara.

Tabi'at buruk yang saya maksudkan adalah buat tak tahu terhadap kebajikan dan keperluan hidup para seniman dan seniwati negara semasa mereka masih hidup.

Bila dengar berita seniman atau seniwati yang semasa hidup tidak dipedulikan mereka, telah menghembuskan nafas yang terakhir dan meninggal dalam keadaan serba susah, maka baru lah mereka datang berduyun duyun, dengan muka muka yang tak malu ni, konon nak tunjukkan duka dan simpati. 


Maka akan di-isytihar lah pulak oleh Ke Bawah Duli, Tuanku Sultan atau Kerajaan Negeri akan penganugerahan pangkat dan darjah kemuliaan terhadap Allahyarham atau Allahyarhamah.



Radio & Televisyen Malaysia akan sibuk menayangkan semula mana mana filem atau rakaman acara di mana seniman atau seniwati tersebut telah berlakon atau membuat persembahan.

Nak buat macamana? Perangai dan pe'el manusia kat Malaysia, tanahair ku ini takkan berubah, sampai Kiamat.

Entah lah....


Bagi anda yang mahu menjemput Seniman Warisan Melayu Asli Malaysia, Tuan Roslan Madun, sudi sudilah menghubungi beliau di talian +60129013636.

Insya Allah.

If Prophet Muhammad is still alive, fat chance that you'll ever get an opportunity to meet him. Here's why!

 
The nasyeed by Maher Zain sounds so catchy and has a good meaning in praising the Greatest Messenger of Allah but if the Prophet Muhammad was still alive today and residing at his home where the Masjid an Nabawi stands today in Medina, fat chance that one could get a chance to meet Rasulullah in person, because the authorities would impose so many official red tape and bureaucracy for those intending to meet him.

Even after his passing, a common pilgrim can't even get one minute @ 60 seconds [alone time] to offer his or her salam to the Prophet of Allah by standing before his Maqam there at Masjidil An Nabawi.

The Saudi policemen would shoo you away as they are extremely paranoid. Unless you are a visiting Sultan, President, Prime Minister or VVIP, fat chance of you getting the courtesy of standing a few seconds at the outside of his tomb.

Here is a video showing President Ramazan Kadyrov of the Islamic Republic of Chechnya, getting the exclusive honour of getting into the grounds of the Maqam of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam.


Protocol and Official Red Tape robs the average Hajj or Umrah pilgrim of their few seconds privilege of a once in a lifetime chance for many, including myself of getting to say a few words in the presence of the Prophet of Allah in peace and contemplation. I felt rushed and dissatisfied.

Moving on now to the matter of kissing the Hajarul Aswad during the Tawaf circumumbulating the Kaaba. The Saudi authorities could learn a thing or two from the Japanese as to how best to handle the teeming crowds and masses of pilgrims jamming up the holiest place of worship for us who are Muslims and Mukmins.


Instead of allowing the pilgrims to crush each other like what we see in the video above, wouldn't it be more practical to organise a more disciplined queing system where eventually each pilgrim gets to kiss the Hajarul Aswad by taking turns and get to do so in a more civilized manner compared to the madness taking place daily.


The Saudis are not known to accept or listen to good advice or suggestions such as this. They are infamous for being stubborn and headstrong. They resisted against the Call of the Messenger of Allah for 13 long years. It would be a modern day miracle if they even bothered to read my views.
