That's too bad. :-( First Soundharya, now Vijayan.

Is this Ceylon Vijayan the really dark fellow who acted in movies like Punnagai Mannan or Vijayan who was introduced by Bharathiraja in Niram maaratha Pookkal?

It is sad.
But I couldn't seem to remember him eventhough I have seen both the following movies.
What role did he do in Punnagai Mannan or Indu poi naalai vaa?

'C-ious, you are correct. He is the Ceylon guy. His full name is Vijayendran.

Chumma, in Punnahai Mannan, he is the guy who tries to protect the Sinhalese girl Revathy from the two misguided Eelam youth saying 'kaLirodu mothividu, katterumbai vittu vidu' (Battle with the elephant, let the small ant be)
Interestingly, at that time, the UNP was in power and UNPs symbol was the Elephant. I am not sure if the pun was intentional on KBs part.

He also played the role of the man who tries to blow up the plane to collect insurance money for his daughters dowry in Pilot Premnath.

So let me get this straight; there were two different Vijayans in Tamil cinema-- one a supporting actor all along and the other known to act side-by-side with Sudhakar in the late 70s and very early 80s? Which one are we referring to here? Did this Vijayan look something like Rajinikanth with long hair?

There is no correct report about Vijayan; One says he is dead and the other like Hindu said only injured.Whom to believe?Why condolence ??
