Joseph Vijay was born to a beautiful, happily married couple S. A. Chandrasekharan and Shoba Chandrasekharan on 22nd June 1974. The fans have now christened me as Ilayathalapthy. I was not a prodigy or a genius in academics who left my studies to pursue acting. I was just an average school kid who had a great passion for acting in films. When I told my folks about what I wanted to do for my living, there was a small storm at home and they were kind of taken aback. But finally they gave me the permission to discontinue my Bachelors Degree of Visual Communications at Loyola College and pursue acting in films.

I entered the industry without any struggle. Otherwise I would have had to approach several companies and scout for opportunities. Having a father as a Director and a writer-cum-producer-cum director as a mother made my entry into films made life easy for me. Finally I made my debut into the industry in 1992. From their I went on do films, some of them were block busters, some of them were the opposite if it. But then there is no such perfect success formula for making the perfect movie. And then I met the love of my life Sangeetha, now my wife, we got married in August 1999, we have also been blessed with a son. There is pretty much nothing to say about myself.

I am basically an introvert. Still just an ordinary guy who spends time with my friends Sajai, Srinath, Sanjeev, Manoj and Ramkumar. And about my favorites nothing much to say there either, my tourist spot being London and Los Angeles. I love non vegetarian food and I am comfortable in Jeans and T-Shirt. Last but not the least I am a strong believer in the Almighty and I believe I have been guided through the difficult times in my life by the Supreme power.
