The Tamil film industry, apart from giving us some of the best tracks in the country that are still used as party bangers, has also given us raw entertainment in the form of fight scenes - the unabashed, crowd-pleasing, whistle-extracting kind.
While production value of most of them are inimitable, it is noteworthy that there are multiple actors in the Tamil film industry who actually are super fit, and can effortlessly hold their own in an unexpected street fight IRL.
Keeping that in mind, here's a list of the 7 fittest Tamil actors who are super strong IRL and can actually kick ass in a real fight.7. Ajith Kumar View this post on Instagram
It's been decades since Thala Ajith has been entertaining us with his OG moves. He's a pro at action scenes - that bit is a no-brainer - but fans were taken aback when he went through a hardcore transformation and sported a jacked physique, replete with six pack abs for his movie 'Vivegam'. The man is experienced, gives his 100% for his fight scenes, and if he could do that in his fifties, he is fit enough to handle a street fight.6.

Yes, the man is lean, but why should it mean he should struggle in a street fight? Just take a look at that ectomorph yet muscular physique, and the way he kills his workouts at the gym, and you'll be convinced that it won't be easy getting past this unassuming yet worthy opponent in a street fight.5. Bharath Srinivasan
This may be an unexpected name for most, but just take one look at his incredible transformation where every single muscle is visible like an anatomy book, and you'd be able to gauge the intensity of the training and hard work that has gone behind it. This man clearly is a beast inside the gym, and some of it surely will effortlessly translate to sheer power outside the gym as well.
Suriya Sivakumar is the OG fitness icon when it comes to the Tamil film industry. He did it back when no one could manage to sport a six pack in commercial cinema, and his legion of fans still swear by his strength and charisma exuded in the super duper hit movies he has acted in. Talk about doing it right, before it became cool!
Because of how powerful an actor he is, the fact that Chiyaan Vikram is one of the fittest and strongest actors in the Tamil film industry is often ignored. Right from sporting a lean & mean physique with a six pack to bulking up into a fierce fight machine, this man has done it all, and we're absolutely certain that he will give his opponent something to think about, if he ends up in a street fight unexpectedly.2.

Anyone who is a hardcore fan of Tamil action movies will testify to the fact that Arun Vijay is a force to be reckoned with, and the man keeps on reinventing himself while setting newer benchmarks with increasingly difficult fitness goals. His Greek God like physique, replete with a crazy, super defined set of six pack abs has created an altogether different standard, as far as fitness is concerned.1. Arya View this post on Instagram

The number one position rightfully goes to the one and only Arya. He has always been one of the fittest men in the Tamil film industry, but his recent transformation for the amazing 'Sarpatta Parambarai' has catapulted his fitness status right on to the top of the pile, and looks like there's no one who even comes close at this point. If he gets embroiled in an unexpected street fight, good luck to his opponent!
