He used to sing and perform in front of his friends and relatives and was popular in school as well as for his talents. He always used to take part in extracurricular activities particularly in music and was 18 when he composed his first music album which consisted of devotional songs named Divya santhwanam. The album touched the hearts of people in his locality, and it was here when his parents realized that because of their persuasion, Vinu had chosen the wrong career of an advocate.

So they talked to their son, and he was allowed to choose his profession accordingly. Vinu started his career with advertisement films combined with his music. He got a chance to work with Tanu Balak, who was a very famous ad films maker of that time.
