Shanmuga Pandian is an Indian actor who has worked in Tamil language films. He is the son of Tamil actor and politician Vijayakanth.[1][2][3]


Shanmuga Pandian made his debut as a leading actor in Sagaptham (2015), co-starring Neha Hinge and Shubra Aiyappa, but the film was heavily panned by critics and failed at the box office. Pandian moved on to work on Thamizhan Endru Sol, again co-starring his father Vijayakanth in a pivotal role, but his father's ill health meant that the project was postponed. Thus Madura Veeran (2018), based on the issues and politics associated with jallikattu, became his second release.[4][5][6]
