Earlier, during the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, Shah Rukh had very graciously praised Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi for his brilliant performances. When it was the Bollywood superstar’s turn to speak, he turned to Sethupathi and said, “I don’t know how to say this and I want to compliment you. You are the most wonderful actor I have ever seen in my life.

Responding to his gracious compliment, Vijay Sethupathi said, “Maybe by mistake! (laughs), I was so happy, I didn’t expect that. I didn’t know whether he knows me or not; suddenly he comments this and I was so shocked.”

Vijay Sethupathi is going to feature in several Hindi projects, making him the pan-India star. Apart from him sharing space with SRK, Vijay will also be working with Katrina Kaif in Merry Christmas and Shahid Kapoor in Raj & DK’s untitled next.
