A. L. Azhagappan is a Tamil film actor and producer. After making films and serving as President of Tamil Nadu Producers Council, he has made a career appearing in supporting roles in films. His sons Vijay and Udhaya are also a part of the Tamil film industry as a director and actor respectively.
He was appointed President of Tamil Nadu Producers Council in 2004, and controversially threatened to sue television network Sun TV for showing clips of films. Azhagappan's work was halted in June 2006, when he was arrested in a cheating case for failing to return money to a financier Vishal Jain regarding a film that never began production. The arrest was considered highly political as a result of Azhagappan's declining relationship with the then poltiical supremo Mu. Karunanidhi.
