It's April 17th which means Chiyaan Vikram, one of Kollywood's most versatile actor, is celebrating his birthday today. On this special day, we bring to you top 10 on-screen pairs with Vikram, who have had sizzling on-screen chemistry with the I man.
Though Vikram made his debut way back in 1990 through En Kadhal Kanmani, his qualities as a fine actor came to light only nine years later, through Sethu. His heroines' obscurity before the release of Sethu didn't help him either in achieving the much needed limelight.
Things changed drastically for Vikram post 2000 as his films were recognized and viewed by many movie buffs. His on-screen pairs were also selected with utmost care by the directors. As the word 'onscreen chemistry' took center stage in early 2000's, Vikram gradually got to romance some of most happening heroines at that time.
We have handpicked top 10 heroines with whom Vikram has set silver screens on fire over the years. These leading ladies have not just looked alright when paired with Vikram, but they have also enhanced the Pithamagan actor's style quotient in the films which is not an exaggeration.
Check out the slides below to know which 10 heroines have made it to our list of top 10 on-screen pairs of Chiyaan Vikram. Not to mention, the list doesn't have any definite order for all the below mentioned heroines have shared blistering chemistry with the hero of the hour.
Vikram's Top 10 Heroines!
Gemini was Kiran Rathod's debut movie. Her role as a free-spirited Marwari woman was portrayed well by her who originally hails from Rajasthan. She is probably one among a few better looking heroines whom were paired with Vikram at that time. Her on-screen chemistry with the hero of Gemini, especially in songs, were one of the highlights of the movie.
Jyothika in Dhool
Jyothika is one actress who will manage to get the on-screen chemistry right with most actors and Vikram's Dhool was no exception. Dhool presented an opportunity to all movie buffs to see Vikram and Jyothika together for the first time and the pair was an instant hit. They also went on to act together in Arul in 2004.
Trisha in Saamy
This on-screen pair is still a favourite among many cinegoers. Vikram and Trisha came together for the second time through Bheemaa but for now, lets focus on their chemistry in Saamy. While everyone had initially thought Trisha might look a tad too young for Vikram, that very factor worked out beautifully in the movie.
Sadha in Anniyan
Anniyan was a highly anticipated movie before its release in 2005. Sadha had an important role to play in the movie and her performance and on-screen chemistry with Vikram was quite impressive. Apart from the romantic scenes with Remo(Vikram), her hatred infused acting while interacting with Ramanujam(Vikram) also worked well in the movie.
Asin in Majaa
Asin was one of the most happening heroine at the time Majaa was released and her chemistry with Vikram was commendable. Majaa was set in a rural background and hence the scope to create sizzling chemistry between the leading pairs was minimal. Yet, Asin and Vikram managed to cast magic on-screen. The song 'Chi Chi Chi' gets a special mention.
Shriya Saran in Kanthaswamy
Shriya Saran, to many, is arguably the best on-screen pair for Chiyaan Vikram. Though the film did not manage to set the screen on fire, Vikram's on-screen chemistry with Shriya did exactly that. Be it songs or scenes, sizzling combination of the lead pair was the brightest spot in the entire movie.
Aishwarya Rai in Raavanan
Though Vikram was not technically paired with Aishwarya Rai in this movie, this very pair managed to steal the show. Vikram shared the screen with Aishwarya Rai for the first time and only a few will not agree to the fact that their on-screen chemistry looked as real as it can get.
Anushka in Deiva Thirumagal
Though Vikram and Anushka were paired up again for Thaandavam, their chemistry in Deiva Thirumagal was simply magical. The movie did not showcase even a single romantic scene involving the central characters, but then nobody would want to limit the word on-screen chemistry to romance alone.
Isha Sharvani in David
Major portion of David had Goa as its backdrop. Both Vikram and Isha's carefree look worked like a charm and also contributed to their looks in the movie. The chemistry between Isha and Vikram was fresh and interesting at the same time.
Amy Jackson in I
This is an exception for the movie has not been released yet. Just going by the movie stills and the trailer, it is hard to convince anyone that the on-screen chemistry between Vikram and Amy might not work in I. The pair looks hot and will only get better once the movie comes alive.
