When this Actor got paralyzed: It is the dream of millions of people to become an actor, but some achieve this destination easily while there are many who keep trying to become a hero for a long time. There are some people in the industry who prove their mettle in the world of acting in the very first attempt. Here we are telling you about one such actor who, at the age of just 20, proved himself for the first time with big stars like Rajinikanth. However, there were many ups and downs in his life and there came a time when he was paralyzed and then he had to disappear from the screen. He became a star at the age of 25, but even before the age of 30, he left films and turned himself into a business tycoon. However, later he again made a great comeback on screen.
Not every hero has the ability to work with Mani Ratnam, very few people are able to understand his vision. He has given many wonderful films in cinema and if you work with him then understand that it is possible to get a new direction in the career of that hero. The hero we are talking about also got a lot of popularity from Mani Ratnam’s film and even today people know him through that movie.
Here we are talking about Bombay actor Arvind Swamy who started his career with Mani Ratnam’s film. For the first time, he started his career with superstars like Rajinikanth and Mammootty, but it was not easy for him to debut with such big stars at the age of 20. When Arvind Swamy made his debut with Thalapathy, in which he was seen in the role of Arjun. This movie received many awards and then Arvind Swami debuted on screen in the lead role.
Arvind Swamy has acted in Mani Ratnam’s two major national hits, Roja in 1992 and Bombay in 1995. The success of these films firmly established him as a star. He then starred opposite Kajol in the 1997 National Award-winning film Minsara Kanavu. The next year, he made his Bollywood debut with Juhi Chawla in Saat Rang Ka Sapne.
By the end of the 90s, Arvind Swamy’s films were not performing well at the box office. Some of his films as a lead actor were abandoned, including Mahesh Bhatt’s directorial debut with Aishwarya Rai and Anupam Kher. The production of two more films took years and Swamy, frustrated with this, left films after 2000.
In the mid-2000s, Arvind Swami, who was now managing his father’s business, met with an accident. Due to this his legs became partially paralyzed. It took about 4-5 years of treatment to recover completely and he had to suffer from pain for a long time.
In 2005, Arvind Swami founded his most successful company. Just before his injury, Swamy had founded Talent Maximus, a company engaged in payroll processing and temporary staffing in India. According to several market tracking portals like Rocketreach, Talent Maximus’ revenue in 2022 was $418 million (Rs 3300 crore). In 2013, Swamy was convinced by his mentor Mani Ratam to return to films with Kadal. The actor then started doing supporting roles instead of lead roles but in his second innings he became very selective.
In 2021, he also made a comeback to Bollywood, when he played the role of MG Ramachandran in the Tamil-Hindi bilingual Thalaivi opposite Kangana Ranaut. He will next be seen in Naragasooran, Kallapart and Sathuranga Vettai 2 but for now these films have been delayed.
