In case you did not know, Vijayakath was born in Mudurai and entered the film world at a relatively young age. He got his first taste of success when the K Vijayan-directed Doorathu Idi Muzhakkam opened to a good response at the box office and earned critical acclaim.
Thereafter, he went on to star in successful films such as Sattam Oru Iruttarai and Senthoora Poove and this helped him find firm foting in the industry. The 1991 release Captain Prabhakaran is regarded as one of his best films. Its success helped him earn the title 'Captain'.
In 2006, Vijayakanth formed his own political party and this helped him add a new dimension to his career. Given his political ambitions, he has not been too active in films in the recent. However, he still enjys a strong fan following.
We wish him a 'Happy Birthday' and hope that he has a good year ahead.
