Vijay Vasanth made his debut in Venkat Prabhu's cult sports film, Chennai 600028 (2007), playing a supporting role as a member of the Sharks cricket team. Vasanth was introduced to Venkat Prabhu by his close friend Shiva, who first introduced him to music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, before he later became acquainted with Prabhu.
The success of that film prompted him to star alongside several of the same co-stars in Thozha, before making a guest appearance in Venkat Prabhu's next project Saroja. Vijay Vasanth then went on to portray a leading role in Samudrakani's Naadodigal alongside Sasikumar and Bharani, with the film becoming a commercial and critical success. He followed it up in 2010 with another supporting role as Gowshik in romantic film, Kanimozhi, where he was paired alongside Jai and Shazahn Padamsee.
Established by his father H. Vasanthakumar in 1978, Vasanth & Co has over 71 stores across Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Bengaluru. With a turnover of above Rs 1,000 crore in 2016, the chain of consumer electronics and home appliances is a household name across Tamil Nadu.
