Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi, in his statement to the media, said that the person who was involved in attack was in an intoxicated state and he couldn’t identify it due to the safety mask he was wearing.

I always wanted to meet people and talk with them” Vijay Sethupathi said to the media.
In a span of 10 years, Vijay Sethupathi has gained a separate fan base for himself. He also got himself involved in a number of controversies. When the actor decided to play Sri lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralidharan in his biographical picture, a huge controversy took place among the Tamil speaking audience. Many who believed that Muttiah Muralidharan supported Srilankan government regarding the “Eezham” attack, demanded Vijay Sethupathi not to act in the film. As a result of the severe outrage that emerged against him, Vijay decided not to act in the film. Due to his public speeches where he asks people to believe in fellow humans instead of believing in a superior power, he started receiving hatred from a set of people. However, the actor is pretty much successful in his professional front as he is busy signing films for various production houses.
