In 2019, Arun acted in Thadam, an action crime thriller film. Arun played a double role in this film for the first time in his career. This was also the second film where Arun Vijay and Magizh Thirumeni joined hands after Thadaiyara Thaakka. The film was loosely based on various real-life crimes where the suspects are identical twins. Thadam's biggest strength was Arun Vijay's convincing performance as Kavin and Ezhil. Though the brothers looked similar, Arun showed a distinct body language and a unique dialogue delivery for the two characters. Then the action thriller film, Saaho. Prabhas was the hero while Arun Vijay play in a pivotal role.


Arun starred in Yennai Arindhaal (2015) with actor Ajith Kumar. It was also Arun's first film with director Gautham Menon. Arun played the role of Victor, an antagonist in the film. In order to enhance the character of Victor, Arun said that he had worked at the gym for more than 6 hours a day. He was also on a high protein diet. Arun's efforts proved to be fruitful as he was well appreciated by Ajith Kumar and Gautham Menon for his dedication and hard work. Arun's performance had an overwhelming response from the audience. The same year, he debuted in Telugu through the film Bruce Lee - The Fighter (2015) as the lead antagonist. He also made his Kannada debut as the lead antagonist through the movie Chakravyuha in 2016. Kuttram 23 (2017), was a success at the box office. His next movie was Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (2018), which was directed by Mani Ratnam.

On September 1, 2015 Arun launched his own production company In Cinemas Entertainment (ICE). Arun had said that he had launched this company to identify and provide an opportunity to ambitious and talented youngsters. Arun's first production venture was Kuttram 23 (2017), a medical crime thriller directed by Arivazhagan. Arun acted as a police officer for the first time in his career. The film was Arun's 23rd film and was expected to release during the Pongal festival but the producers were not able to get enough theaters to screen the film due to the release of Bairavaa. The film was then postponed to release on March 3, 2017. The film had a special screening for distributors before the release. Screening films for distributors was the norm in the Tamil film industry a couple of decades ago but this tradition gradually faded and films were bought by distributors based on the actor's star value. Kuttram 23 was released on March 3, 2017 and had positive reviews from critics and the audience.


In 2006, Arun Vijay married Aarathi, daughter of film producer Dr. N. S. Mohan and a post-graduate in Psychology, with whom he has a daughter, Purvi and a son, Arnav Vijay. In 2010, Kavitha’s daughter Hasini, married N. S. Mohan's son Hemanth, who is a co-producer of Feather Touch Entertainments and has also acted alongside Arun Vijay in Malai Malai.

In October 2006, he had changed his name from Arunkumar to Arun Vijay, hoping that a new name would bring better luck for him. In 2009, Arun Vijay opted against starring in low budget films and opted to collaborate with his father-in-law's production house Feather Touch Entertainment for his future projects. The first venture, Malai Malai (2009) directed by A. Venkatesh, became a commercial success. While the next film, Maanja Velu (2010) by the same team, was also a success. He then appeared in Magizh Thirumeni's action-thriller, Thadaiyara Thaakka (2012), marking a move away from his previous two masala films. The film, which featured Mamta Mohandas alongside Arun Vijay, became a super hit.


Arun acted in director Ramesh Selvan's Jananam (2004). Arun toiled hard for his role. He had high hopes for this film as the film had a very good story line but it had to go through a lot of problems during the production period. Firstly, the film's heroine Priyanka Trivedi could not fulfill her scheduled commitments in the film as she got married in 2003, the producer was not able to change the heroine as they had already filmed major portions of the film, this resulted in the film being released without a proper screenplay and an edited story line. The producer then had a huge loss and was not able to release the film despite having a scheduled release date. After encountering all these difficulties, It failed to make a mark, despite Arun's good acting as the screenplay was not good and the story was incomplete. However, critics appreciated Arun's acting in the movie. Azhagai Irukkirai Bayamai Irukkirathu (2006), Thavam (2007) and Vedha (2008) are other releases but did not have an impact.


Arun's next film was Mutham (2002). The film was initially titled Muthamidalamma but had to be changed to Mutham after the censor screening. It was directed by S.A.

The film proved Arun's potentials and it had won the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Film (Second Prize) in 2001.


In 2000, Arun featured in two films, Kannaal Pesavaa and Anbudan. Kannaal Pesavaa released in August and it was Arun's second film with actors Suvalakshmi, Goundamani and Senthil. Following Anbudan released in November, the film had two heroines Meena and Rambha. The film had a unique story line but failed to make it big in the box office because of poor marketing and publicity due to budget restraints. Arun's acting was later appreciated when the film was telecast on Raj TV.


In 1998, Arun had the opportunity to play the lead role in director Balasekaran's film Thulli Thirintha Kaalam. The film was produced by Kavithalayaa Productions, a company owned by K.Balachander. The film was a commercial success and was later remade in Telugu with a different cast....

It proved that Arun was a versatile dancer.


Arun Vijay signed on for an A. R. Rahman musical titled Love Story to be his acting debut, but the delay of that project meant that he accepted Anbalaya Films' offer of Sundar C's Murai Mappillai (1995).
