Vijayakanth is the only captain who has made fans wait for him after starring in several successful films in Tamil cinema. Due to some circumstances, some of his very successful films were snatched from him. Let’s see about the films he missed.
new path: In 1989, the film New Path was released under the direction of Parthiban. In this, his opposite Sita has worked. Parthiban made his directorial debut through this film. He has prepared the story for it and told it to Vijayakanth first. He also told me that I loved the story but since I am already busy with other films, I cannot come and act in these films anymore. After this he decided that he can play the hero in the film. The film saw high returns both critically and commercially. This film also won many awards.

shook hands: NK Vishwanathan directed the 1990 film Join Hands. It starred Ramki, Arunpandian, Nirosha, Sindhu and Srividya. The director and makers have decided that it would be great if Arun Pandian’s character is replaced by Vijayakanth in the film and Vijayakanth is asked. But since he was a committee member of only six films that year, this film had to be reserved.
SunThe film Suryan, directed by Pavithran, was released in 1992. It starred Sarathkumar, Roja, Goundamani and Manorama. He told them that Vijayakanth would be perfect for the story of the film. He had also agreed to act in it. But after that Vijayakanth could not act in the film as he had to shave his head early during the shoot.

Sir: In 2005, the film Aiya, directed by Hari, was released. It starred Sarathkumar, Napoleon, Nayanthara and Vadivelu. Vijayakanth was initially selected to replace Sarathkumar in this film. But at that time his films were not much liked by the fans. So if he was cast in the film, the film would have also flopped, so the director replaced him with Sarathkumar.
bliss: Anandam movie directed by Lingusamy was released in 2001. It starred Mammootty, Murali, Abbas, Devyani, Ramba, Sneha and many more. Vijayakanth was to act in place of Mammootty in the film. But at that time Vijayakanth was working in films like Thavasi, Vanchinathan, Narasimha. Also, Vijayakanth himself refrained from saying that if he had acted in this film as well, it would not have been much different as the film Vanthampola has already released with the same kind of brother and sister affection.
