Vinay is one of the handsome hunks in Kollywood. Despite possessing the best of the looks a very few heroes can match, Vinay is not so busy in Kollywood.
Vinay’s latest outing was Onbadhula Guru which exited in theatres soon after its release a couple of weeks back. The film had nothing new to offer to the audiences and had repeat of famous sequences in many hit films and met with a deserving treatment at the box-office.
Standing at 6’4”, Vinay is said to be the tallest actor in stature in Tamil films. He is a couple of inches taller than Sathyaraj, who at 6’2”, was the tallest actor for many years till Vinay arrived with the late Jiiva’s Unnalae Unnalae a few years back. Even the lanky Lakshmi Rai, who is taller than many front line actresses, had to be adjusted on a ‘foam’ while shooting close-up sequences with Vinay for Onbadhula Guru.
Rai hasn’t faced the ‘foam’ experience with any other hero as on date and openly acknowledged it during the film’s shoot. Vinay attributes his height to his passion for wrestling and his every-day work-outs and exercises. “In fact, I was the shortest in my team of wrestlers during training; others would be at least two or three inches taller than me,” says a smiling Vinay.
Incidentally, Vinay happens to be a close friend of actor Vishal, another six-footer in the industry.
