5 times Thalapathy Vijay turned ‘Sportsman’ in Movies

Being entertainer isn’t an easy job and that’s what it makes Thalapathy Vijay an iconic amuser of Tamil cinema. With ‘Bigil’ hitting screens this Friday for the festive occasion of Diwali and Vijay playing a sportsman in the movie, we  bring you 5 movies that featured him in same avatar.


Vijay gave a power packed performance in the film ‘Badri’, where he trained himself as ‘Kick-Boxer’. The practice he underwent for the sake of this role was shown in the movie as well.


Of course, everyone knows that he was a ‘Kabbadi’ player in the movie and it became a massive hit and game-changer in his career indeed.

The flashback portions features Vijay as Vetrimaaran, a Malla Yudham expert and that was the signature look, we see in the poster.


Finally, we have Bigil, where the film itself is based on the game of ‘Football’. We see Thalapathy Vijay as football player and later a coach of women’s team.
