Career Vikram debuted in the film Meera in 1990. Following its release, the film did not run well at the box office. Vikram still accepted subsequent offers he received and saw his first hit film, Sethu in 1999. Sethu, which was released in 1999, was Vikram's first blockbuster though he made his debut almost a decade earlier. The film grossed over Rs.50 million at the box office.

It grossed over Rs. 200 million at the box office. His successful performance prompted Shankar to cast him for his high-budgeted Anniyan. Anniyan was also another top-grossing film released in 2005, for which he received a Filmfare Best Tamil Actor Award. The film won 8 out of the 15 awards possible at the 2005 Filmfare Awards South.
