Vijay Sethupathi on his birthday
“I thank all the film personalities and fans who wished me on my birthday. Three days ago, a photo taken during my birthday has emerged to be controversial. In the picture, I used a sword to cut my cake. It was only because I’m acting in director Ponram’s film, in which the sword plays an important role. Since I celebrated my birthday with the team, I used the sword to cut my cake. Everyone has pointed out to me that this could set a bad example to others and I promise to be careful henceforth. If I hurt anyone with my actions, I apologise and regret it deeply,” read the actor’s statement.
Previously, the Chennai police has arrested those who used swords to cut birthday cakes.
On the film front, Sethupathi is earning a lot of praise for his role in Master, which is emerging to be a blockbuster. The actor also is in talks to enter Bollywood soon, and reports of him acting with Katrina Kaif are doing the rounds as well.
