Actor Arvind Swami turns 48 today.

The actor, introduced by Mani Ratnam in Thalapathy, became a heart-throb immediately after acting in successful films like Roja, Bombay and Minsaara Kanavu.

After 2000, he stopped acting in films and spent a decade in

businesses ranging from software engineering, construction,

international trade to global outsourcing.

He returned to act once again in Mani Ratnam's Kadal in 2013. He

garnered a huge fan following after his role as Siddharth Abhimanyu in

Thani Oruvan.

He also briefly worked as a television presenter and host of the third season of Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi on Star Vijay.

His upcoming projects include the much-awaited Naragasooran, directed

by Karthik Naren, and Mani Ratnam's Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
