Vimal is an Indian film actor, who appears in Tamil films. Following cameo appearances in the Vijay-starrer Ghilli and Kuruvi and Ajith Kumar's Kireedam, he played the lead role in Pandiraj's critically acclaimed Pasanga. Subsequently, he played lead roles in several low-budget productions.
While being a part of Koothu-P-Pattarai, Vimal was appearing in uncredited roles in several high-profile Tamil films, including Ghilli (2004), Kireedam (2007) and Kuruvi (2008), starring noted lead actors Vijay and Ajith Kumar. He essayed his first leading role in Pasanga (2008), directed by Pandiraj, in which he played Meenakshisundaram, an insurance agent. The film won critical acclaim, while his performance was well-received. He next appeared in A. Sarkunam's comedy entertainer Kalavani (2010) which went on to become a Super hit.
His other 2010 film was Maattuthaavani which was long-delayed and went unnoticed. In 2011, he acted in three films, Cloud Nine Movies' Thoonga Nagaram, Eththan and Vaagai Sooda Vaa, which saw him collaborating with A. Sarkunam again. Vaagai Sooda Vaa was a period piece set in the 1960s, with Vimal playing a village teacher named Veluthambi.
Vimal is currently working on more than half-a-dozen projects. His next release is touted to be Ishtam, a remake of Telugu hit Yemaindhi Ee Vela, in which he plays an urban character for the first time. He is shooting for comedy films Anaithukkum Aasaipadu and UTV's Kalakalappu under Sundar C's direction that features an ensemble cast.
Vimal has also signed Unmai Sonnal Nesippaya, a film based on real incidents to be directed by newcomer Ravi Amudhan's Rendavathu Padam co-starring Richard Rishi and Aravind Akash. Besides he has been roped in for two yet-to-be-titled ventures, to be directed by Thirumurugan, who played villain in his film Kalavani, and Padmamagan.
