‘Slim’ Vanitha Vijayakumar back in the reckoning as an actress


Vanitha Vijayakumar Slim

Actress Vanitha Vijayakumar appears to have swallowed some kind of a magic pill. Daughter of veteran actor Vijayakumar, Vanitha debuted as producer-director Raj Kiran’s heroine in the film Manickam many years back, starred in a few more movies including Chandralekha opposite the then upcoming star Vijay. She couldn’t create big waves in Kollywood and married television actor Aakash before bidding good-bye to the industry.

Vanitha was very much in the news for most part of the last year when commotion erupted in her household about the custody of her son, born to Aakash and her. She openly clashed with her parents and didn’t mince words in attacking Vijayakumar during her innumerable number of meetings with presspersons. After divorcing Aakash, she married Rajan only to ditch him and go back to Aakash again.

In order to remain with her children, she has chosen to live with Aakash again. The actress, who looked plump and over-weight last year, has now revealed a ‘slim avatar’ of hers which many thought was almost unimaginable. She has reportedly been sending ‘feelers’ to many producers and directors announcing her intention for a ‘comeback’ in films.

She is said to be listening to many stories and is yet to decide about her ‘comeback’ vehicle. Talking about her new slim avatar, she says “I had no time to think about films for the past 11 years as I had turned to marital life and due to many personal problems. I have decided to try my luck again in films. Soon, I’d announce about the project I’d be starring in. I underwent rigorous fitness regime to reduce my weight and shed the flab. It was natural as I didn’t opt for any kind of surgeries,” says a proud-looking Vanitha.
