Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi who is juggling many projects has donated a generous amount towards a multi-storeyed housing project that the Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) is planning to build in Chennai.

He gave a cheque of rupees 1 crore to the president of FEFSI RK Selvamani and said "It makes me wonder how RK Selvamani, who is the president of FEFSI, thinks about what's the source of income for film workers and how they are spending 50% of their income towards rent. I have a great deal of respect towards him because of this."

The Vikram Vedha actor also revealed that RK Selvamani had made a request to him in connection with this project a couple of years ago. "I kept worrying about the fact that I couldn't help him at that time. There was a delay in providing help, and I called him to apologise for the same. That is when I acted in a couple of ads for real-estate developers. I decided that I'd donate the amount that I earn from those gigs to him. Because, for me, every time I get some money, I end up using it to repay some loan or the other that I have borrowed."

"After deciding so, I felt like I was doing a huge favour. But I realised what I was giving was just going to be just a drop in the ocean because this is an 800-crore project. This is a big dream. It should start well and end well. I request that our workers cooperate with Selvamani for this project. I sincerely believe that this project will be completed in a short term and we have a good leader to implement it," he added.

To the surprise of the FEFSI members, Vijay Sethupathi also informed that he will continue to contribute to this project in whatever way possible. On the professional front, VJS is currently shooting for his upcoming film, Vikram alongside Kamal Haasan and Fahad Faasil.
