Vijayalakshmi Feroz

Vijayalakshmi Feroz, born Vijayalakshmi Agathiyan, is a versatile Indian actress who has left an indelible mark on the Tamil entertainment industry. From her debut as a timid girl in “Chennai 600028” to her triumph as the winner of “Survivor Tamil,” Vijayalakshmi’s career has been a rollercoaster of success and challenges. Let’s delve into the life and journey of this talented artist, both on and off-screen.

Early Life and Acting Career Beginnings

Vijayalakshmi Feroz was born into a family deeply rooted in the Tamil film industry. As the daughter of renowned director Agathiyan, known for films like “Kadhal Kottai” and “Kaadhal Kavithai,” Vijayalakshmi had cinema in her blood. She stepped into the limelight with her acting debut in Venkat Prabhu’s “Chennai 600028” (2007), where she portrayed the character of Selvi, a timid yet endearing girl. This marked the beginning of a promising acting career for Vijayalakshmi.

Critical Acclaim and Commercial Success

Her portrayal of Uthra in Mysskin’s “Anjathe” (2008) earned her critical acclaim, with reviewers praising her performance as a timid girl. Despite initial success, some of her subsequent films like “Adhe Neram Adhe Idam” (2009) and “Kattradhu Kalavu” (2010) did not fare as well at the box office. However, Vijayalakshmi’s talent and dedication to her craft were undeniable, earning her a place in the hearts of Tamil cinema fans.

Venture into Film Production

After her marriage to childhood friend Feroz Mohammed in 2015, Vijayalakshmi shifted her focus to film production. She made an exception to her decision by reprising her role as Selvi in the sequel “Chennai 600028 II” (2016), which was both a critical and commercial success. During the same period, she produced her first film, “Pandigai” (2017), directed by her husband Feroz. This marked her foray into the world of film production, showcasing her versatility behind the scenes.

Reality TV Triumph: Survivor Tamil

In 2021, Vijayalakshmi decided to test her mettle in the grueling world of reality television by participating in “Survivor Tamil.” The show, which tests contestants’ endurance and survival skills, proved to be a challenging yet rewarding experience for Vijayalakshmi. In a nail-biting finale, she emerged as the sole survivor, showcasing her determination and resilience.

Personal Life and Family

Vijayalakshmi comes from a family deeply ingrained in the entertainment industry. Her father, Agathiyan, is a well-known director, while her mother, Radha, was a homemaker. Sadly, her mother passed away in 2016. Vijayalakshmi has two sisters, Kani Thiru, a television host married to film director Thiru, and Niranjini, a costume designer and actress.

In September 2015, Vijayalakshmi tied the knot with Feroz Mohammed, her former schoolmate. The couple decided to honor their respective Hindu and Islamic faiths, reflecting their diverse backgrounds. Their union brought forth a son in May 2017, adding a new chapter to their family’s story.
