George Vishnu is an Indian actor who has worked on Tamil-language films and in television dramas. [1]



George Vishnu, the son of Malaysian Tamil actor Ravichandran and Malayalam actress Sheela, was chosen by producer Bhaskar to debut in a film titled Kadhal Rojavae in 1997. [2] According to the deal signed, he was not supposed to act in any other film until Kadhal Rojavae had been completed and released. However, during production, Vishnu could not wait and starred in a Malayalam film, while Director Keyaar was still shooting, causing a rift between the actor and producer Bhaskar during the making of the project. [3] The film, which featured him alongside Pooja Kumar, subsequently had a release after a delay in production in 2000.

The failure of the film meant that he instead chose to portray characters in television serials, and appeared intermittently in Tamil films including the serial Chellamay (2004) and Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru (2013).
