SUPER HIT FRIDAY : V for victory, Vijay Sethupathi

In Super Hit Friday, we chronicle the success story of Vijay Sethupathi. From a humble beginning as a co-star, he rose to become a successful hero and a shining star later. This week we would be checking out 2012 which marked the rise of Vijay Sethupathi. Beleive me, he had three mega hits - Sundara Pandian, Naduvula Konjam Pakatha Kaanom and Pizza. From thereon, he did not look back and was scaling one height after another.

He started his film career working as a background actor, playing minor supporting roles for over five years before playing his first lead role in Seenu Ramasamy's Thenmerku Paruvakaatru. He went on to play the villain role in Sundarapandian and got to play meaty lead roles Pizza 2012 and Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom 2012. Sundarapandaian was Sasikumar's heroic venture but Vijay Sethupathi's performance as baddie won appreciation of all.

Naduvla Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom was a hilarious outing in which he plays a youngster with temporary memory loss. It was a huge hit. Pizza was a fantasy horror film and arrived Karthik Subbaraj as filmmaker with the movie. Today Vijay Sethupathi is a name to reckon with in Tamil cinema. he has rendered a string of successful movies and is making his mark in Telugu and Malayalam cinema too.
