Vijay was in Nepal along with the unit of Telugu movie 'etakaram.com' for shooting. The film, reportedly starring Manoj Nandam and Dinesh, was being shot in the country and Vijay was playing a friend of the character played by Dinesh.
Vijay, a character actor who was also the choreographer, died on the spot while three others with him were injured.
Vijay hails from Bapatla in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh. The film industry has urged the government to bring home Vijay's body.
The 20-member unit was initially thought to be safe but is reportedly still missing. Kishan said the team had left Hyderabad on April 15 for Gorakhpur en route to Nepal.
Racing against time, multi-national rescue teams with sniffer dogs and advanced equipment are desperately trying to locate survivors as hundreds of people are still missing.
More than 700 disaster relief experts drawn from the National Disaster Relief Force have been deployed by India.
The blocked roads, downed power lines and overcrowded hospitals along with fresh tremors are hampering rescue efforts to locate survivors of the Saturday's 7.8 magnitude quake that had its impact in several cities in Bihar, West Bengal and UP northeast India.
It was also felt in Southern and Western parts of India, China, Bhutan and as far as Pakistan and Bangladesh.
