Vignesh is a Tamil film actor from Erode, Tamil Nadu, India. He has acted in several movies including Kizhakku Cheemayile, Kathali, Raman Abdullah, Velai, Appu, Ilango, Ennai Thalatta Varuvala, Soori and Aacharya.[2]

Even though he has acted in several films, he was unable to get a breakthrough, and notably turned down an offer to star in Bala's Sethu, which went on to catapult Vikram to stardom.[3]

Career[edit]

He then starred in Chellakkannu, which told the tragic story of a young couple caught between feuding families, and the film performed well and ran for over one hundred days at the box office. The film had featured him alongside actress Yuvarani, as did Pasumpon, while his Nadodi Mannan became a box office failure.[4]

For Soori, Vignesh had to tonsure his head for 70 times.[5][6] His performance received mixed reviews with critics claiming that Vignesh "tends to go slightly overboard, especially when he howls aloud in agony and "his cries seem over the top".[7][8] The film went unnoticed at box office, post-release Vignesh signed two projects titled "Ilango" and "Parithi" with both failing to proceed after launch.[9][10]
