Udhaya is a South Indian film actor who acts primarily in Tamil films only. Being the son of noted film producer A L Azhagappan and the brother of director A LVijay, it was not difficult for him to get a break in films. Although this actor made his debut in 2009 with ‘Tirunelveli’ luck did not smile on this actor as many of his film projects were shelved and did not give him an opportunity to work on better projects. Some of his films that got shelved are ‘Kaadhal Jaathi’. ‘Poonguyile’ and ‘
Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’ which made his to struggle more as an actor. Thus for the last ten years, he has been struggling to make his credibility as a star in the industry. Most of the films that released after ‘Tirunveli’ were box-office failures and the actor did not get to sign any important films. However, in 2011, director Sanjay Ram offered him to play a negative (villain) and positive character (hero) in a film named ‘Poova Thalaiya,’, which received a mixed response. The film was an average success in box office. Later, he appeared in a film called ‘
Raa Raa’ with director Sandilyan, which did not make a huge impact and received mixed reviews. The film bombed at the box office. In 2015, he had only a solo release in theaters, The film ‘Aavi Kumar’ was a Tamil horror comedy film directed by Kandeepan that had Udhaya and
Kanika Tiwari in lead roles. Earlier he also appeared in his brother Vijay’s project ‘
Thalaivaa’ (2013). Udhaya married Keerthika in 2007. As his career graph did not make him a successful hero, the actor is hopeful to try umpteen times till he succeeds and get success as well. Currently, the actor is busy with two film projects that he has on his hand. Two films 'Aavi Kumar' and '
Utharavu Maharaja' is progressing on the floor. The actor also has taken up a keen interest to produce films with a leading production house.
