Biography - Bhagyaraj

K. Bhagyaraj is a Tamil film director, actor, writer and producer. He has starred, directed and produced several Tamil films, along with a few Telugu and Hindi films. Beginning his career as an assistant to directors G. Ramakrishnan and Bharathiraja, Bhagyaraj became recognised for his scriptwriting talent. Among his early work was the script for the hit Tamil film Kizhake Pogum Rayil (1978) and Bharathirajas Tik Tik Tik (1981). He made his directorial debut with the film Suvarillatha Chittirangal (1979). He quickly established his own concern and started producing a string of distinctive films made mainly in the Tamil language. Bhagyaraj often cast himself in the lead roles of the films he scripts and directs, effectively carving out a niche for himself in the actor-auteur vein. His style of filmmaking is notable for its relatively elaborate, witty, and double entendre-laced script and socially-themed framework. His on-screen personae are typically characterised by their ironic sense of humour and intelligent bravado.

Bhagyaraj has made more than thirty films. He has made forays into the Hindi language film industry (Bollywood), directing stars of likes of Amitabh Bachchan. In recent times, the failure of his films like Gnana Pazham, Vaettiya Madichi Kattu (1997) and Sokka Thangam forced him to retire. His comeback film in 2006, Parijatham, was an effort well-received in the cinemas. Bhagyaraj also produces television serials.

Bhagyaraj, from Gobichettipalayam is married to Poornima Jayaram. She is his co-star in the film Darling Darling Darling. His daughter Saranya Bhagyaraj debuted in his film Parijatham. His son Shanthnoo Bhagyaraj made his debut in the film Sakkarakatti which released in 2008.Bhagyaraj was married first to actress Praveena. She died in the late 1980s succumbing to an aggravated case of jaundice.
