Vijay Sethupathi

 Vijay Sethupathi's Maharaja hit the screens today and is receiving a positive response from all over. His colleagues from the industry all praise Vijay Sethupathi for his outstanding performance in the film.

It has been a long time since a film of Vijay Sethupathi as the main lead has bagged a hit and Maharaja marks his 50th film, making it very special for him. He worked so hard to bring back the market and has made some decisions to correct the previous decisions that affected his career.


Vijay Sethupathi discussed his reluctance to share the screen with big stars and his decision to avoid villain roles. He explained "No, I think I'm fatigued by those kinds of films (working with stars). This is because I've had some good and bad experiences in the Indian film industry."

The actor expressed disappointment about his efforts being underappreciated and feeling undervalued. He said, "When you sign on a film with another star, you know what you are signing on for in terms of the role. But sometimes no matter how hard you've worked and done well there's very minimal value given to this at the end of the day. Because you contribute to the film as much as the star but no one talks about it."

Vijay Sethupathi also shared why he has decided not to take on negative roles anymore. He mentioned that he has turned down multiple roles to avoid being typecast. "When you do multiple roles in the same space (antagonist), then there are also limitations and comparisons to your earlier films and performances," he said.
