But looks like the actor is yet to get over the love and respect he enjoyed while shooting for Vedalam, for in his latest interview to Times of India, he has spoken more about his Vedalam days than his upcoming film.
"It was great fun working with Ajith sir. I've done nine south films so far, but none compares to 'Vedalam' when it comes to the ambience on the set, I must say. Ajith sir really cared about every person - we were in Milan for a few days, and we used to eat together, he'd wait for me, and later when he came to know I don't eat mutton, he specially had chicken biryani made. These were small things, but for me, it showed how amazing the man is," he has said.
He has even termed the time he spent on the sets of Vedalam as "unforgettable."
"He'd keep asking me, 'What do you eat?', 'What is your regimen?', 'What time do you sleep?', etc, and one day I told him I'd prepare a diet chart. The next morning, Shiva sir told me, 'Ajith sir is calling you, is the diet chart ready?' And I was like, Ajith sir, I love you! Seriously, those 25 days of my life are unforgettable."
Talking about Vijay Sethupathi, the 29-year-old actor has said, "I did some research, and I heard a lot of positive things about Vijay Sethupathi. I am told he is a great guy - that by nature and attitude he's a humble person, and workwise brilliant, and this also prompted me to accept this role."
So, what kind of role is he playing in Rekka? "It's a meaty role, with scope for testing out my act-o-meter. Mine is a 14-day schedule, and I play businessman. One thing I can tell you for sure: I'll be a stylishly dressed villain."
