Chiyaan Vikram Profile And Career

Chiyaan Vikram was born on 17 April 1966, and He was born as Kennedy to a Christian father and the Hindu Mother in Madras, Tamil Nadu, India. His father, John Victor (alias Vinod Raj) was a native of Paramakudi and ran away from home to start a career in films. His father didn’t become very successful and only managed to act in the supporting roles in Tamil films and television serials, and this made Vikram take part in theatre lessons and become professionally trained in the classical and cinema dance forms to ensure he become a leading actor. Rajeshwari, Vikram’s mother, was the sub-collector and her brother, Thyagarajan is an established director and actor in the Tamil film Industry, with his son, Prashanth, being Vikram’s first cousin.
