Chiyaan Vikram is now a grandfather!

There is good news in the Chiyaan Vikram household! The actor has turned grandpa! His daughter, Akshita, turned mother to a baby girl today afternoon. We hear that she delivered the baby around 1 pm.

The family had earlier had a simple celebration when Akshita broke the news to her parents; father Vikram and mother Shyla, that she was pregnant.

Akshita married her long-time beau Manu Ranjith, son of FMCG honcho CK Ranganathan, in 2017. The wedding took place at former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK Patriarch M Karunanidhi’s residence in Gopalapuram. Interestingly, Manu is the great-grandson of the DMK supremo. Pictures of the couple seeking the blessings of M Karunanidhi had then gone viral on social media. A grand reception was later held in Chennai in which the who’s who of the industry was present. The wedding was a low-key affair, just like the engagement.Looking at Vikram, it might be hard to believe — but yes, he is a thatha now!

Vikram’s son, Dhruv, on the other hand, recently made his acting debut with Adithya Varma, remake of the Telugu super hit Arjun Reddy that starred Vijay Deverakonda.
