Actor Vijay Sethupathi and actor-politician Kushboo Sundar were having an interactive masterclass at the 54th International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
In the ongoing Indian International Film Festival (IIFFI), actor Vijay Sethupathi, in a masterclass, talks about his journey, acting perspective, and much more.
In the interactive masterclass at the 54th IIFFI, actor Vijay Sethupathi, entering the stage amidst applause with actress-politician Khushbu Sundar, urged everyone not to take the conversation too seriously after collecting claps. He was there for the screening of his first silent film, “Gandhi Talks,” at IIFFI 23.
He shared, “This morning, my daughter asked me what I would talk about today. I told her how to make tea. So, don’t take this (conversation) as a class,” Sethupathi said in his opening remarks. “This is not a class at all. I don’t even know what to do in front of the camera. Just behave with me as one of you. Let’s create and share. And if you don’t understand my language, please look at my face.”
He thanked his wife, J. Sethupathi, for not letting him return to Dubai to keep his regular job, saying, “I was just living, going with the flow. Then I fell in love during a wedding in India, got married, and my wife didn’t let me go back to Dubai, and then cinema happened.”
To the question of whether he always wanted to be an actor since childhood, Sethupathi replied, “I cannot focus on one thing continuously, nor do I have the consistency to stick to one thing… During my childhood, I enrolled to learn playing the Mridangam in T-Nagar, but after a week, I dropped out… That is how I am… My intention was to become a businessman and earn a lot of money.”
Talking about his journey from his first film and the lessons learned, Sethupathi said, “During my first film, I was afraid of making mistakes and wanted to impress the director somehow. Now, I focus on how to do it. I am a much secure actor now.”

Addressing his unique attire at the inauguration ceremony, where everyone was suited-booted, while he wore a simple blue shirt and jeans, the 45-year-old actor said, “I felt like an alien that night… But every designer is expensive, and I am like this. I cannot be comfortable in a suit… But honestly, when I was there, I felt insecure.”
Sethupathi started his journey with Thenmerku Paruvakaatru in 2010. Reflecting on his learnings from his first film, he shared, “During my first film, I was afraid of making mistakes and wanted to impress the director somehow. Now, I focus on how to do it. I am a much secure actor now.”
