Arvind Swamy
Arvind Swamy - Profiles of Cine Artist

Arvind Swamy is a former Indian film actor. He has acted in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi. Arvind is appreciated and acclaimed by the public as well as film critics. Apart from his filmi connection, this ace actor is also engaged in a number of other business sectors. However, his mother’s ill-health forced him to come back to India, shortly after he had gone.

A hardworking student, Arvind always considered acting as a hobby, not a career option. This, combined with his penchant for quality performances, justifies his appearance in only 15 movies, in a career spanning almost two decades.

Mani Ratnam's ‘Thalapathi’ served as Arvind's stepping stone into the world of cinema. Though he was not the lead actor in the movie, it certainly provided him with a decent beginning. Mani Ratnam's ‘Roja’, was the first film in which he played the role of the protagonist.

The movie hit jackpot and was a major hit throughout the country. Arvind’s striking performance in the movie proved his talent and artistic skills as an actor. While ‘Roja’ shot him to fame instantly, ‘Bombay’ and ‘Sapnay’ were the movies that established him as an ace actor.

Acting had never been the mainstream career option for Arvind Swamy and he has always been very choosy about his roles. Though he has done very few number of films, when compared to other South Indian actors, almost all of them were the biggest hits of their time and were acknowledged by both, the mass and film critics. 

He has acted in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films. Amongst the most notable hits of Arvind Swamy, one can include 'Roja', 'Bombay', 'Minsaara Kanavu', 'Indira' and 'Devaraagam'.

Arvind Swamy was the chairman and managing director of ProLease India and InterPro India until 2005. It was in the same year that he started his own company ‘Talent Maximus’. He presides over as the Chairman and MD of ‘Talent Maximus’, which is basically concerned with Payroll Processing and Employee administration. His company is believed to be one of the fastest-growing service providers within its domain.
