Thalapathy Vijay is a massive star in South India. His films are super hits, thanks to the die-hard fans who support him during every theatrical release.

Behind the mass persona and charm, Thalapathy Vijay is a simple and quiet man. The star got married to Sangeetha Sornalingam in 1999 and the couple is blessed with two children - son Jason Sanjay and daughter Divya Saasha.

Unknown to many, Sangeetha was Vijay's fan who loved his performance in the 1996 film 'Poove Unakkaga.' She was then based in the UK and visited Vijay during one of his shoots while visiting Chennai.

Love blossomed between them after a few meets, and according to some reports, Vijay's parents went to meet the bride's parents in London to arrange the wedding.

In a throwback interview, Vijay spoke about his wife and how she supported his acting career. When asked to dedicate a song for her, he chose the song 'Kanmoodi Thirakumbothu' from one of his hit films Sachein.
