Vijay Antony Biography

    Vijay Antony is an Indian music composer, playback singer, producer and actor. Initially, he worked as a sound engineer and later became a music director. Antony, who joined Loyola College in 1998, started, after finishing college, his own studio named 'Audiophiles', where he first did sound engineering and later composed jingles for TV and documentaries.

    It was then when Aascar Ravichandran approached Antony to compose music for the film Dishyum and he eventually entered the Tamil film industry. However, the soundtrack of the film Sukran, directed by S. A. Chandrasekhar, was released first and became his debut album.

    Subsequently other directors, too, gave him the opportunity to compose for their films. He is the "most sought after" (Next to A.R. Rahman) music director after his great hits in Tamil movies like "Naaku Mukka" in Kadhalil Vizhunthen and "Aathichudi" from TN 07 AL 4777, which tremendously increased his fame.

    Vijay Anthony has also given music to Kannada movie Budhivanta starring Upendra, which was actually a remake of the Tamil film Naan Avanillai.

    As a music director, Vijay also holds the credit of winning the 2009 Cannes Golden Lion for the 'nakka mukka' commercial (for Times of India) in the Best of Music category.

    He was accused of plagiarism for the song "Unakena Naan" from the film Kadhalil Vizhunthen, although the CD mentions that the song's composer is the director himself.

    His debut as an actor was in the Tamil movie Naan. He is the first music director to venture out as an actor.
