Arun Vijay Timeline

  • 1995

    Arun Vijay signed on for an A. R. Rahman musical Love Story to be his acting debut, but the delay of that project meant that he accepted Anbalaya Filmsu0027 offer of Sundar Cu0027s Murai Mappillai (1995). He was 18 years old when he signed to act in Murai Mapillai. This made him one of the youngest actors to debut as a hero in the Tamil film industry. Murai Mapillai had a star cast which included Manivannan, K. Prabakaran, Kalaranjini, Goundamani and Senthil. The film was released on December 1995. Arun Vijay was praised for his dance and fight sequences in the movie.

  • 1997

    Arun Vijay then signed for two films Kathirunda Kadhal and Ganga Gowri under Ganga Gowri Productions. Both were released in 1997. Kathirunda Kadhal was Arunu0027s first film with Suvalakshmi.

  • 1998

    In 1998, Arun Vijay played the lead role in director Balasekaranu0027s film Thulli Thirintha Kaalam. It was produced by Kavithalayaa Productions, a company owned by K.Balachander. The film was a commercial success and was later remade in Telugu with a different cast.

    In 2000, Arun Vijay featured in two films, Kannaal Pesavaa and Anbudan. Kannal Pesavaa was released in August 2000 and was his second film with actors Suvalakshmi, Goundamani and Senthil. Anbudan, released in November 2000, had two heroines Meena and Rambha. The film had a unique storyline but failed to make it big in the box office because of poor marketing and publicity due to budget restraints. Arun Vijayu0027s acting was later appreciated when the film was telecast on Raj TV.

  • 2001

    In 2001, he played a civil engineer in Pandavar Bhoomi, directed by Cheran. This was the first movie in which Arun Vijay and his father Vijayakumar acted together. Vijayakumar played the role of Arun Vijayu0027s father in the movie. This movie proved Arun Vijayu0027s potential, and won the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Film (Second Prize) in 2001.

  • 2003

    He acted in director Ramesh Selvanu0027s Jananam (2004). He had high hopes for this filmu0027s storyline, but it had a lot of problems during the production period. The filmu0027s heroine Priyanka Trivedi could not fulfill her scheduled commitments in the film, as she got married in 2003. The producer was not able to change the heroine as they had already filmed major portions of the film, and this resulted in the film being released without a proper screenplay and an edited storyline. The producer had a huge loss and was not able to release the film despite having a scheduled release date. The film failed to make a mark, as the screenplay was not good and the story was incomplete. However, critics appreciated Arun Vijayu0027s acting in the movie.

  • 2006

    In 2006, Vijay married Aarathi, daughter of film producer Dr. N. S. Mohan and a post-graduate in Psychology, with whom he has a daughter, Purvi and a son, Arun Vijay.

Mohanu0027s son Hemanth, who is a co-producer of Feather Touch Entertainments and also acted alongside Arun Vijay in Malai Malai.In October 2006, Arun changed his name from Arunkumar to Arun Vijay, hoping that a new name would bring better luck for him.

  • 2009

    In 2009, he opted against starring in low budget films and opted to collaborate with his father-in-lawu0027s production house Feather Touch Entertainment for his future projects. The first venture, Malai Malai (2009), directed by A. Venkatesh, became a commercial success. The next, Maanja Velu (2010), by the same team, was also a success. Arun Vijay appeared in Magizh Thirumeniu0027s action-thriller Thadaiyara Thaakka (2012), marking a move away from his previous two Masala films. The film, which featured Mamta Mohandas, became a super hit.

  • 2015

    On September 1, 2015 Arun Vijay launched his own production company, In Cinemas Entertainment (ICE). He said that he launched the company to identify and provide an opportunity to ambitious and talented youngsters.

  • 2016

    The same year, he debuted in Telugu in the film Bruce Lee - The Fighter (2015) as the lead antagonist. He also made his Kannada debut as the lead antagonist in the movie Chakravyuha in 2016. Kuttram 23 (2017) was a success at the box office. His next movie was Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (2018),directed by Mani Ratnam which did very well at the box office. His character Thyagu was very well appreciated.

  • 2017

    His first production venture was Kuttram 23 (2017), a medical crime thriller directed by Arivazhagan. Arun Vijay acted as a police officer for the first time. This was his 23rd film, and was expected to release during the Pongal festival, but the producers were not able to get enough theaters to screen the film due to the release of Bairavaa. The film was postponed to release on March 3, 2017. It had a special screening for distributors before the release. Screening films for distributors was the norm in the Tamil film industry a couple of decades ago, but this tradition gradually faded and films were bought by distributors based on the actoru0027s star value. Kuttram 23 was released on March 3, 2017 and received positive reviews from critics and audiences.

  • 2019

    In 2019, Arun Vijay acted in Thadam, an action crime thriller. He played his first double role in this film. This was also the second film in which he and Magizh Thirumeni worked together, after Thadaiyara Thaakka. The film was loosely based on various real-life crimes where the suspects are identical twins. Thadamu0027s biggest strength was Arun Vijayu0027s convincing performance as Kavin and Ezhil. Though the brothers looked similar, he showed a distinct body language and a unique dialogue delivery for the two characters. The film was a blockbuster hit.
