At a recent roundtable discussion, Vijay Sethupathi mentioned that Sivaji Ganesan, Kamal Haasan, Mohanlal, and MGR as his favorites and if given chance, he would learn their process of acting. 

“Sivaji Ganesan is a legendary actor. I like Kamal sir’s brilliance. Mohanlal sir is an effortless performer. I also like MGR sir because all his songs are super hits, his script sense is phenomenal”, said Sethupathi.

Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Manoj Bajpayee, Parvathy, and Ayushman Khuranna patiently listened to Sethupathi’s method of approaching characters. Ranveer Singh said that he is a big fan of Rasukutty from Super Deluxe. According to him, the chemistry between Sethupathi and Rasukutty was the biggest highlight of the film.

Manoj Bajpayee said that he would like to work with Sethupathi some day to know about his acting process and Parvathy also expressed her interest to share screen space with him.

Talking about foraying into Hindi cinema, Sethupathi said: "My biggest fear about Bollywood is not the language but I'm not sure whether I would understand the culture of people here. Only on knowing the culture and mindset of the people, I would be able to establish emotional connect". 

It's worth mentioning here that Sethupathi will be sharing screen space with Aamir Khan's Lal Singh Chaddha
