Ilayathalapathy Vijay born on June 22, 1974 was bit by the acting bug in his childhood itself. At the age of 18, the star actor got his first big break as the lead actor.

Vijay who has been acting since childhood became a popular face in romantic and action flicks. His latest offering, the remake of Aamir Khan’s 3 idiots titled Nanban also met with great appreciation. Last week the actor toured some cinemas in Coimbatore to celebrate the success of the film.

Vijay’s career, which was sailing in rough waters during the last days of the previous DMK regime in Tamil Nadu, changed along with the political fortunes of the state. Ever since, Vijay’s career graph has skyrocketed. So who else but Vijay could be our Hunk of The Week.
