Early Life

Vishnu was born to Ramesh Kudawla, who is an ADGP in tamilnadu police now. His original name is Vishal Kudawla coming from a family nowhere related to the film industry, he was interested in sports and films since his childhood. After completing his MBA, he went on to become a cricketer. But due to an unexpected injury (fracture) in his leg he couldn't continue with the same and switched fields. He later met Rajini Natraj, daughter of Natraj (Superstar Rajinikanth's very close friend) while studying for an MBA degree. They eventually fell in love and decided to get married. They were married in November 2011. He has a sister named Shubhra who is married and settled in singapore. His mother is a house wife who has played an important role in his upbringing.


His first debut film Vennila kabadi Kuzhu, Vishnu spent months preparing for the role. He had to tan his body sitting for hours in the sun to get dark and look like a player and then for 3 months he trained for kabbadi matches under a coach, for five hours a day. The film opened to very positive reviews, with Vishnu earning a nomination from the Vijay Awards for Best Debut Actor

He subsequently worked on the comedy, Kullanari Koottam, though none of his films after his debut performed as well as his first and the actor found himself struggling for the right breakthrough. He had two releases in 2014: the romantic comedy Mundasupatti under Thirukumaran Entertainment and the sports drama Jeeva for which he collaborated with Suseenthiran again. Both films won positive reviews and performed well at the box office. In 2015 he first appeared in the science fiction comedy Indru Netru Naalai directed by Ravikumar. Vishnu is currently working in Kalukkuray Maaplay directed by Suresh, which features Bindu Madhavi alongside him, while he has finished shooting for Seenu Ramasamy's Idam Porul Yaeval.
