Vijayakumar is a Tamil actor and politician. Along with predominant work in Tamil cinema since 1973, he has acted in a few Hindi and Telugu movies. As of 2009, he is acting in the television serial, Thangam, aired on Sun TV.
Vijayakumar was born in Nattuchalai, Tamil Nadu, India. He debuted as a 12-year old in the 1961 Tamil movie Sri Valli. Again in 1964 with the help of his uncle, he came to Chennai at the age of 15 years and tried for chances but could not make it. Later in 1973 he got an offer to act in films. His first major role was in Kailasam Balachander`s Aval Oru Thodar Kathai in 1974.
His journey in filmdom began as a child actor in the film Sri Valli in 1961. In 1973 Vijayakumar got his first break in Ponnuku Thanga Manasu directed by P. Madhavan. His films of the 1970s include Azhage Unnai Aradhikkerain, Kizhakku Chemaiyile, Velai Kidachirukku, Anthimanthaarai, Aval Oru Thodar Kathai, Mathura Geetham, Deepam and Indrupol Endrum Vaazhga.
Then came Mani Ratnam`s Agni Natchathiram, which narrated the story of two half brothers who fight for their father`s love and property. He has also made brief stints in Telugu Cinema. He has acted in over 400 films. The 1995 film Anthi Mantharai almost took him close to National Film Award for Best Actor.
Vijayakumar`s family consist of wives Muthukannu and Manjula, daughters Kavitha, Anitha, Vanitha, Preetha, Sridevi and son Arun Vijay. So far, Arun and his father have come together on screen just twice—for Pandavar Bhoomi and Maanja Velu.
