Vijay Arora became immortal as Indrajit in TV serial Ramayan Though it is true Vijay Arora became a star with the huge success of Yaadon Ki Baaraat but the movie did not help him much as most of the film’s success credit went to the film’s hit songs and the action scenes of Dharmendra and the villain Shakal (Ajit). The little success Vijay Arora won was by his small cameos in Subhash Ghai’s film Gautam Govinda and Manmohan Desai’s hit film Roti. But real success came his way when he was signed by film legend Ramanand Sagar’s TV serial Ramayan. In this TV serial he played the role of Indrajit or Meghnad, the mighty son of Ravaan. He was impressive in the role. This opened doors in TV world as he was signed by film legend Shyam Benegal to play Prince Salim/Emperor Jahangir in his TV serial Bharat Ek Khoj.

Vijay Arora wanted to become actor Vijay Arora hails from Gandhidham and wanted to be an actor. He was handsome hence he ran away to Mumbai to try luck in Bollywood. But after visiting many film studious he realized that just good looks are not essential for an actor. Hence he decided to groom himself in acting and on an advice of a filmmaker he joined FTII (Film and Television Institute of India). He was a student of 1971 batch which had some really talented actors like, Jaya Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Danny and Subhash Ghai, who wanted to become actor but later became filmmaker.

Girls went crazy on Vijay Arora but he married Miss India With a string of hit films, Vijay Arora was suddenly surrounded by women and girls went crazy on him. He was predicted to be the next Rajesh Khanna of the early 70’s. On one hand Vijay Arora was gaining his popularity among female fans, on other hand Vijay was dating Miss India Dilber Debara and an Ex Model . The two kept their romance in wraps for many years and eventually married. He died on 2 February 2007 at his residence at age of 62 years.

Vijay Arora became an instant star with his hit film Yaadon Ki Baaraat Vijay Arora was discovered by B.R. Ishara, the early 70’s low budget filmmaker who made careers of many new comers including Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha. In his film Zaroorat (1972) Vijay Arora was paired with another new comer Reena Roy. The story of a helpless girl who seeks job in Mumbai and in return is exploited sexually was appreciated for its simplicity and bitter truth of women exploitation in society. The success of Zaroorat landed him good roles opposite top actresses like Asha Parekh in Rakhi Aur Hathkadi, Jaya Bhadhuri and Waheda Rehman in Phagun, Yogeeta Bali in Ek Mutthi Aasmaan. He was also signed by top filmmakers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee (Sabse Bada Sukh), Satyen Bose (Mere Bhaiya) and last but not the least Nasir Hussain’s Yaadon Ki Baaraat in which he was paired opposite the inimitable Zeenat Aman! Yaadon Ki Baaraat was super hit. The movie’s hit songs Chura Liya Hai Tumne Jo Dil Ko….; O Meri Soni Meri Tamanna….; Lekar Hum Deewana Dil ……; Aap Ke Kamre Mein Koi Rehta Hain and of course the title track Yaadon Ki Baaraat Nikli Hai …….made Vijay Arora a star overnight! Vijay Arora took a beating in the mid 70’s After doing few heroine centric film like Zaroorat, Rakhi Aur Hathkadi, Phagun etc Vijay Arora’s career got a beating in the mid-70’s as he became a puppet in many more women centric roles like Shabana Azmi in Kadambari; Tanuja in Insaaf ; Moushumi Chatterjee in Natak. Even in the super hit B.R. Films 36 Ghante starring top stars like Sunil Dutt, Raaj Kumar and Asha Parekh, Vijay Arora was used a showpiece to sing song around trees with Praveen Babi. This frustrated Vijay Arora and he dared to change tracks and accepted small but powerful character roles like in Manmohan Desai’s Roti and Subhash Ghai’s Gautam Govinda. The song Ik ritu aaye, ik ritu jaaye …. in Gautam Govinda became big hit and Vijay Arora was applauded as a good actor. Vijay Arora became famous character actor in the 80’s After much appreciation in Subhash Ghai’s Gautam Govinda, Vijay Arora did many hit films in the 80’s with big banners and top stars like K. Viswanath’s Sargam (With Rishi Kapoor), Krishna’s Meri Aawaz Suno (With Jeetendra), T. Ramarao’s Yeh To Kamal Ho Gaya (With Kamal Hasaan), Anil Ganguly’s Saaheb (With Anil Kapoor), Partho Ghosh’s 100 Days starring Jackie Shroff and Madhuri Dixit, Rajiv Rai's Vishwatma (With Naseeruddin Shah and Sunny Deol), B R Chopra's Awam with Rajesh Khanna, Saawan Kumar Tak's Souten with Rajesh Khanna etc.
