His father is the famous producer V.Swaminathan who is a director of Lakshmi Movie Makers, famous for producing films like Pudupettai, Bhagavathy, Silambattam, Unnai Ninaithu and distributor of critically acclaimed ‘Anbe Sivam’. On one of his father’s meetings with Kasthuri Raja, director, and father to actor Dhanush, he was offered a chance to act in his movie. He followed it up and acted for 15 days but the project was then unfortunately shelved. This didn’t deter Ashvin, but instead, ignited the passion for acting and he landed a role on his own in Boss Engira Bhaskaran and had to follow and court Prabhu Solomon for a long time for his role in ‘Kumki’, for which he was finalised mere three days before the shooting of the film. This actor made it on his own in the industry despite his father being a big shot in Kollywood and has disclosed in an interview that his father never made any offer to make a film just for his cause. He has acted in around 20 films in his career spanning 6 years, all thanks to his enthusiasm and hard work. He learned short put for his film ‘Eetti’ and acted for 66 days with an elephant for ‘Kumki’. He has acted in comic roles, ‘the-friend-of-the hero’ roles, and also done some serious ones.

He acted in horror movies like ‘Maharani Kottai’ and ‘Naradhan’ and did some action- sequences in ‘Enamo Nadakuthu’. He shared in an interview that he wouldn’t hesitate to do a negative role. This Chennai boy is a fan of Kamal Hassan and knows Tamil and English. Though he studied French in his 11th and 12th standard, like everyone, he remembers nothing French now. He desires to essay Nagesh’s role in ‘Server Sundaram’, though he acknowledges that no one else can do that role other than Nagesh himself. He is friendly with all co-stars and shares good friendhisp with actor Vimal with whom he acted with, in ‘Kaaval’. Here’s to hoping that this actor gets to entertain us for years to come.
