Vimal made his debut in the film Pasanga directed by Pandiraj. After this he had acted in the film Kalavani directed by Sargunam which fetched him a good name.
He got continuous offers because he was suitable for village based roles and had natural sense of humor.
While he was busily acting he got married to his relative who was a medical student. He was also alleged for attending film function in an inebriated state.
He also shared the screen with other heroes without any grudge. By doing so he sustained himself in the field. Now the situation has worsened for him after the advent of Vijay Sethupathy and Sivakarthikeyan.
Both of them have given hat tricks which was not possible for Vimal. So he has decided to keep away from comedy roles and wants to switch over to mild action oriented roles.
