Chennai: #PrayForNeasamani has been trending all over the internet. Many have been left clueless with the (not-so) related memes. However, few netizens have taken the issue of the character’s health seriously.

Nesamani is a character from the film Friends, played by Vadivelu. In one of the scenes, Neasamani’s nephew drops a hammer on Nesamani setting off a comical series of events.

The trend started when the admin of the Facebook page Civil Engineering Learning posted a meme featuring a hammer and posed the question, “What do you call this in your country?”

One of the users, Vigesh Prabakar, commented: “This is what we call Suthiyal. It will give "tung tung" sound when we blow with it on something. Painting contractor Neasamani's head was broken in jamin palace with this one by his nephew. Paavam.”

Another respondent, assuming it to be an actual incident, responded: “Hope he is okay now”.

Prabakar, continued the conversation with a sarcastic reply and stated, “He is Ok da. Immediate first aid given with water spraying by his team.”

The respondent then replied saying, “Will pray for him”.

Vigesh Prabakar then created the hashtag #Pray_for_neasamani which began to trend.

As the star has become a trend on social media, it’s only fair that people are educated about Vadivelu. Here are top 5 roles played by the Tamil actor.
