Vijay was born on June 22, 1974 to S.A. Chandrasekhar and Shoba Chandrasekhar. He had a sister named Vidhya who died when she was just two. Vijay studied Visual Communications at Loyola College, but dropped out to pursue an acting career.

He began his career doing minor roles as a child artist in the Tamil Cinema Industry while also attending a theatre for stage plays, to follow his dream to act.

After five years of minor and unnoticed roles in Tamil Lunguage films, Vijay gained Indian cinema's attention in 1996 by playing the role of Raja in Poove Unakkaga, his first blockbuster and since then he has acted in over forty Indian films, with his main intention being Tamil language ventures, earning him the title of Ilayathalapathy in 1996, the title name is now mentioned in the credits of all his projects.

Vijay comes from a family which has strong experience in the film industry. Father, S. A. Chandrasekar is a popular director and mother Shobha is an accomplished playback singer. Vijay performs predominantly in leading roles in medium-budget films, ranging from romantic comedies and dram to action thrillers. His most popular films include Poove Unakkaga (1996), Kadhalukku Mariyadhai (1997), Kushi (2000) and Ghilli (2004).

Vijay has acted as a child actor in some of his father's films. His first lead role was in his father's film Naalaya Theerpu. His father S.A. Chandrasekhar decided to cast Vijayakanth, whom he worked with in many films, with Vijay in Sendhoorapandi. The movie had a decent run at the box office and Vijay was noticed. In 1996, Vijay starred in the blockbuster hit Poove Unakkaga directed by Vikraman. Shorlty after Vijay starred in another blockbuster Kadhalukku Mariyadhai. The film directed by Fazil became a huge box office hit and can be considered a trend setter. At this time Vijay was one of the industry's most popular stars.

During this time Vijay usually starred in romantic comedies and his dance abilities were being recognized. He also sang a few songs in his films and in the Vijayakanth and Surya Sivakumar starrer Periyanna. Vijay is one of the few lead actors of his generation to share the screen with veteran actor Sivaji Ganesan. This opportunity came in the film Once More directed by his father.

After hits in the 2000s such as Kushi, Priyamanavale, and Friends. He then had a string of films that did not do well in the box office and failed to receive much critical acclaim, however this did not affect his star status.

Thirumalai in 2004 was a turning point in Vijay's career. It was a commercial hit and he began to portray a new look with a trimmed mustache with beard. After that, he appeared in the Dharani-drected Ghilli, one of Vijay's biggest box office releases to date and ran for more than 220 days in theatres, for which the producer, A .M. Rathnam held a function on the 200th day. The movie also boosted the careers of co-stars Trisha Krishnan and Prakash Raj as the former became a popular leading lady, while the latter was flooded with many supporting roles in big banner films. The back to back hits made Vijay focus more on action films. His 2005 releases Thirupachi and Sivakasi both directed by Perarasu were also box office hits. These successful ventures made Vijay a "minimum-guarantee hero" amongst producers, distributors and theater owners. Despite the Perarasu directed films in 2005, he starred in Sachien, released in the middle of that year, which was the last romance film he appeared in till date.

The following venture was Aathi which did not meet success like the previous hits. Vijay then teamed up with Prabhu Deva Sundaram in Pokkiri, one of 2007's biggest hits. The film was praised for his performance as an undercover cop and the story which was a remake of a Telugu movie. Azhagiya Thamizh Magan was Vijay's next release in 2007. The film had a huge opening during its Diwali release. The film lost its fame after release, however it was Vijay's first film in portraying dual roles and working with Shriya Saran.

His  Kuruvi in 2008 with Trisha Krishnan and Dharani as director had opened large to mixed reviews all over the world. The movie has been bringing in lots of profits since the release. [3][4]. Prabhu Deva Sundaram has announced his latest venture, Villu (which was previously titled as Singam) to have Vijay play the lead role. The two will team together after Pokkiri's success. Vijay will be working alongside Nayantara

He married a Srilankan Tamil Hindu girl Sangeetha on 25th August 1999. They have two children, Jason Sanjay, born on August 26, 2000 in London; and Divya Saasha born on September 9, 2005 in Chennai

"It's not a cinematic face at's simply a tinplate....the mouse-like thing that is his face..."  these were some of the most devastating and negative type of criticism lavished upon Vijay once upon a time when he had had just stepped into cinefield as newface artist! It's only after boldly facing all such odds and insults that 'young super star' Vijay has reached the pinnacle of highest fame and popularity he's enjoying now!

                      He got introduced into film-acting through the Tamil film directed by his father S.A.Chandrasekaran. While acting in the film, one day in the sets, an assistant director made fun of Vijay saying that the latter's face just looked like a mouse! This comment, as it was made, didn't fail to reach Vijay's ears too! But he simply took it rather sportively and didn't get angry at all! Instead he began putting in hard-work and saw that his acting career gradually got elevated to the top spot, as far as newcomers are concerned, in cine industry!

                  One of the consequences of this sudden growth is that he earned the name of "the emperor of (revenue) collection" ("vasool chakravarthy") even as early as his 17th film itself! Cinema Distributors gathered together and announced: "Vijay's films have the same kind of reception and revenue collection as Rajinikanth and Kamalhassan's films do have! So we remove ceiling method for getting distribution rights for his films!".

                    Vijay always remains very simple without the least trace of any affected manners or pretence! Rather he's very affectionate towards one and all and shows special respect and regards to parents and elders! He worships with gratitude those who are responsible for his present level of development in life! First of all his father S.A.Chandrasekaran, mother Shoba, then actor Vijayakanth----like this his list of people who lend him great help in his formative period in cinema is getting on extended!

                Vijay was born on June 22 as son to the lovers turned life-partners S.A.Chandrasekaran and Shoba! Vijay also had an younger sister by name Vidya, but the latter died quite unexpectedly! S.A.Chandrasekaran has directed so far 50 films in different languages. Shoba has directed "Nanbargal" and "Innisai Mazhai".

               Vijay who's a drop-out from an incompleted B.Sc. Visual Communications course in Chennai Loyola College, got introduced as newface hero through the Tamil film "Naalaiya Theerppu", directed by his father S.A.Chandrasekaran. Vijay, who treats actor Vijayakanth as his affectionate elder brother, remains a staunch fan of Super Star Rajinikanth. Among actresses Meena, Gajol and Madhuri Dixit are his favourites.

              When Vijay was acting in "Deva", during the shooting of a particular action sequence, without asking for a dupe artist, he himself jumped down from a terrace,  and thus greatly stunned the viewers who had assembled there, with his act of valour! While acting in "Chandralekha" he got leg injury and managed acting in the subsequent shots as a lame person. It's Vijay's habit to attend punctually his shooting schedules! "Punctuality is the most important thing"--this's an advice by his father. Also Vijay hasn't so far been trapped into any nasty gossips of derogatory kind.

                His hit films like "Poove Unakkaaka", "Love To-day", 'Nerukku Ner", "Once More", "Kaathalukku Mariyathai", "Ninaiththen Vanthaai", "Yentrentrum Kaathal" and "Thullaatha Manamum Thullum" have, one after the other,  made easy the cineworld success-journey of Vijay. Rajinikanth once showered upon him his heart-felt felicitations saying: "You have got God's great help. Work hard and you can attain still greater levels of development in future".

                In a theatre in Chennai, the victory celebration of the film "Poove Unakkaaka" took place. Tamilnadu Chief Minister Kalaignar Karunanidhi participated in it and gave away the shield to Vijay. This is considered by Vijay as the most fortunate omen in his career and he has now started lending various helps to the needy poor through his fans' association. When asked "Whether such acts of lending assistance to the poor is anything like laying the foundation for Vijay's future entry into politics?", he replies: "No, no...If one is born as a human being, it becomes his bounden duty to do good to other fellow beings! I'm doing only that! I would remain, until the last, an actor liked by all!"

               Unmistakable outlook and a crystal clear expression of  views----that's the mark of this success hero, Vijay!
