One of South India’s biggest stars who has made it through the thick and thin of the cinema world and has created an image of unsolicited resolution to make it big in the film industry is none other than Chiyaan Vikram. Born as Kennedy John Victor on April 17, 1966, he is better known by his stage name Vikram or Chiyaan Vikram. Kennedy’s journey of becoming the Southern star, Chiyaan Vikram was not an easy one.

In fact, the big break that awaited Vikram was the film Sethu, that happened after a gap of ten years after he entered the industry. This was that one turn in Vikram’s life from which there was no looking back. After this he essayed a number of characters, all with their distinct styles and mannerism and all of them added a feather in his cap. Gradually, people started watching Vikram’s movie to appreciate the effort that the actor took to become that character. Thus, in that respect, he is our very own, Christian Bale, who is known for his method acting.
