|Vijay - Tamil Film Actor|
Joseph Vijay is a Tamil film star, whose recent films Vettaikkaran, Villu , Kuruvi and Azhagiya Tamil Magan have proved to be duds at the box office.|
Villu, Kuruvi and Azhagiya Tamil Magan lacked the entertainment appeal of Vijay's previous movie Pokiri, where he plays a rowdy and is paired opposite heroine Asin.
Pokiri proved to be a big success in India and with the diaspora outside. A remake of the successful Telugu film of the same name, Pokiri was a slick action movie focusing on the activities of a vicious criminal called Tamil (Vijay).
However, Vijay's earlier movie Aathi (2007) with Trisha as his co-star proved to be a dud and met with a poor reception from the audience. Some of the Vijay movies that have found favor with the audience include Thirumalai and Ghilli.
Vijay made his debut as a hero in the 1992 Tamil film Naalaya Theerpu and has acted in 45 films so far. He dropped out of the Bachelors Degree of Visual Communications program at Loyola College to pursue a career in films.
Interestingly, several of Vijay's successful movies including Pokiri, Kadhalukku Mariyadhai and Ninaithaen Vandhai are remakes of movies first made in other languages.
Born on June 22, 1974 to Tamil film producers S.A. Chandrasekaran and Shoba Chandrasekar, Vijay is married to Sangeeta. The couple have two children Sanjay and Divya Saasha.
Vijay is fondly known as Ilaya Thalapathy (Young General) by his fans.
