Vikram – The Iron Man Of Kollywood

 Kennedy John Victor a.k.a. Vikram, is one of Tamil cinema’s most popular stars. He started his career as a theatre artist, went on to be a dubbing artist, and finally began starring in films. But the journey wasn’t as simple as it sounds. If you’re a fan of the actor, you would’ve heard about his struggles and the hardships he faced as he worked his way to the top. From winning the National Award to the Filmfare Award, Vikram has often been appreciated for his performances. Here’s why the actor is often referred to as the Man Of Steel. 

1. Vikram debuted with the film En Kadhal Kanmani (1990). He went on to star in 23 films in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. After nine years of struggle, he was finally recognized for his breakthrough performance in Sethu. The film won him the Filmfare Special Jury Award and Tamil Nadu State Film Award Special Prize.

2. Vikram was a part of Kandukondain Kandukondain, VIP and Kadhalan. Before becoming a mainstream actor in films, Vikram has been the voice of several actors. He has dubbed for choreographer-turned-actor Prabhu Deva, Abbas and even Ajith Kumar! It also has to be noted that Vikram lent his voice for the Tamil-dubbed version of Gandhi (he gave the voice for Ben Kingsley).
 
 
3.  While preparing to play the role of a visually impaired singer in Kasi, Vikram practiced moving his eyeballs so that only his sclera (the whites) could be seen. His eye sight has changed after the film. His perfect vision is not perfect anymore.
 
 
4. To appear shriveled in his film Sethu (his first hit), which was set in a mental asylum, Vikram lived only on fruit juice for six months and lost about 16 kgs. He maintained the look by going on a diet that consisted of juices and egg white.
 
 
5. Vikram donned several looks for his film I, including appearing as a beast and a man suffering from a disease. Vikram had to lose 20 kilograms and live on ten tiny meals a day.  Apart from undergoing a physical transformation, Vikram had to endure the side-effects of make-up as well. He developed folliculitis, a rash from his allergy to the prosthetic makeup, which covered his skin for 11 to 17 hours a day.
