Article Name[edit]

Chiyaan is the title given by fans, and the actor known as Vikram. It is best to give 'Vikram' as article name.

Vikram's birthname[edit]

What is Vikram's real birthname now? On his official website (http://www.chiyaanvikram.net/biography.php), it's mentioned that it's "Vikram K Vinod"! How do you people say, his real name is "John Kennedy"? (On his official website itself, Vikram only mentions, that he is popularly known as "Kenny"!) Johannes003 (talk) 17:18, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

It has been reported in Yahoo movies that that is his birth name. How reliable a source that is, I don't know. Pasting the link here for consideration. http://in.movies.yahoo.com/news-detail/23818/From-John-Kennedy-Vikram-42-years.html Nvarma85 (talk) 12:44, 21 January 2010 (UTC)


Vikram's birth name is Kennedy John Victor. See this picture http://www.plumeriamovies.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Vikram-Old-PIC.jpg

He is known as Kenny among his close circles. His father John Victor's alias name is Vinod Raj. In his official fan website, though it's mentioned as Vikram K Vinod, contraction of Vikram Kennedy Vinod (an amalgamation of his screen name + original name + alias name of his father), it's not appropriate to be take that name as his birth name — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:9:7E82:2168:165:A6AD:1248:DFEF (talk) 01:49, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Vikram's DOB[edit]

According to the IMDB web page his birth information is 17 April 1960, Paramakudi, Tamil Nadu, India http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1417314/bio —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sumithar (talkcontribs) 17:09, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

"Chiyaan Vikram"[edit]

This isnt his stage name. Its just "Vikram". By this logic, we will have to rename Rajinikanth to "superstar rajini"--Sodabottle (talk) 13:16, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Additional info[edit]

@ Commander (Ping Me)

Found some info abt a planned film called Thrill featuring Vikram and Laila. [1]. Could you bother to add them somewhere? -- Sriram Vikram (talk) 08:03, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

The news was published before 11 years. Looks like a dropped project which hardly got any coverage. Vensatry (Ping me) 11:44, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
Could add a couple sentences and cite the reference. Doesn't the article have anything about dropped projects? I saw 3 dropped films being mentioned, Selvaraghavan, Vikram Kumar and Boopathy Pandian? -- Sriram Vikram (talk) 16:17, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
I thought you were asking to add that film in the filmography table. Never mind, it can be added in the relevant section if you feel it's notable. Vensatry (Ping me) 04:34, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

@ Vensatry Another info that Vikram was slated to made an album with Pravin Mani [2]. Please add these info. Keep the article updated with his recent works too. Regards -- Sriram Vikram (talk) 14:40, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
