Vijay Sethupathi on working with Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Shahrukh Khan 

Tamil superstar Vijay Sethupathi, who is best known to Hindi audience for his performance in 2017 thriller 'Vikram Vedha' is going to make his Hindi debut with Shahid Kapoor starrer web show 'Farzi'. During the trailer launch event for the same, Vijay opened up about working in Hindi language and sharing screen with Shahid for the first time.

Sethupathi said, "I don’t know how to call it a debut as I don’t see it as a debut. I did my first film in 2010. It’s been twelve years since I debuted as a hero. I’ve done about 55 films. Every time I do a film, I am like a kid. Be it short form or long form, we are putting the same kind of effort in each and every shot to make the audience interested. I was trying to impress my girlfriend when I was in training school. I was trying to impress the girl whom I loved with every shot I did.”

Sharing how he ended up getting a role in 'Farzi', Sethupathi said, "I met Raj & DK when I was on the way to a night shoot. Somebody called me and said that Manoj Bajpayee wanted to meet me. It was like a surprise to me to go and see him. I couldn’t believe that he wanted to meet me. I met him and he was the same person I saw in Company and Satya. He is so handsome and he was very sweet with me. Then I met Raj & DK who were there too. I didn’t know there would be something work related for me, that too in Hindi. I learnt Hindi when I was in Dubai for three years, where I did an accountant’s job. It was so many years ago and I had not practiced, so I was worried about my language. Shahid was there too and this was offered to me.”

Joking about his upcoming Hindi films like 'Jawaan' and 'Merry Christmas', the actor said, "When I get a Hindi project, I have to tell (people) that I’m working with Shahid or that I’m the villain for Shah Rukh Khan (Jawan), working with Katrina Kaif (Merry Christmas), then only I’m taken seriously."
