Shanmuga Pandiyan, younger son of actor Vijaykanth, is all set to make his debut in films soon. It was revealed by none other than Vijaykanth himself. In a free-wheeling interview, the actor-turned-politician has said that his sons had ‘perfect’ understanding and rarely fought among themselves.
“Young Shanmuga Pandiyan, in particular, is so obedient and always obeys his elder brother. Whenever he gets a new dress or something, he always makes it a point to uncover the pack through his elder brother,” says Vijaykanth. The burly actor-politician has two sons in Vijaya Prabhakaran and Shanmuga Pandiyan. While Vijaya Prabhakaran pursues his engineering at SRM University, Shanmuga Pandiyan is pursuing degree in Visual Communication from Loyola College.
“Among the two sons, Shanmuga Pandiyan shows more interest in films and has expressed his desire to become an actor. He has been attending his dance and stunt classes regularly in order to prepare himself for a career in acting. He would soon be debuting as hero in one of our home production. In all likelihood, I might play a ‘guest appearance’ in the film.
“The director, the heroine and the other actors would be decided later. In the meantime, I also plan to direct a movie. I play the ‘tough parent’ at home while my wife plays the peace-maker and she is more accessible to the sons. Thankfully, the brothers share a good rapport among themselves. Shanmuga Pandiyan has the full ‘consent’ of Vijaya Prabhakaran to pursue a career in acting,” says a beaming Vijaykanth.
