Vidharth[1] is an Indian actor, primarily concentrating in Tamil films. He started his career in 2001 doing uncredited roles. His first major role was in Thiruvannamalai, where he played villain, but his next release Mynaa became a huge success. He has also done a film for AVM Productions titled Mudhal Idam.

Career[edit]

Vidharth's father was a cook in Singapore and sent money home for Vidharth to be educated, although he described himself as a "very weak student". Vidharth then hoped to become a bus driver, much to the displeasure of his father, and worked in Devakottai, Madurai and Coimbatore. However he became depressed with his occupation and soon left for Chennai, without telling his family, to try and make a career in the Tamil film industry.

He soon joined the drama troupe, Koothu-P-Pattarai through some of his friends and began learning the nuances of acting step by step and made his on screen debut with a small role in Gautham Menon's Minnale (2001). Despite believing that the small role would bring him more offers, it did not, and Vidharth continued small-time work with his drama troupe. After ten years, Prabhu Solomon selected him to appear in supporting roles in three of his films, in Kokki, Lee and Laadam, after seeing him in action in Koothupattarai.[2]

His first major role was in Thiruvannamalai, where he played villain, but after lot of hard work and dedication he got the opportunity to do the main role in his next release Mynaa became a huge success. He has also done a film for AVM Productions titled Mudhal Idam. In 2014, he acted alongside Ajith Kumar in the masala film Veeram. [3]
