Recently, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Vijay spoke about the praise Shah Rukh Khan showered on him. The actor also talked about his equation with Shah Rukh during Jawan's filming. Vijay further revealed what he learned from the actor.

Vijay said, “I learn something from everyone. What I learned from Shah Rukh Khan is that his energy levels never go down. One day, during the shoot, he was unwell but you just can’t figure it out unless he tells you. That’s an amazing quality he has. He shared a lot of things about me which I felt very happy about. Even what Rajinikanth and Vijay have said about me makes me really happy. I felt happy that they noticed so many aspects about me and my performances.”

Vijay, who played the antagonist in Jawan (2023), had also opened up about not wanting to play a villain in films going forward. He said, "I first said this during the promotions of Merry Christmas that I don’t want to play villain roles and guest roles going forward. I have turned down many such roles in recent times. When you do multiple roles in the same space (antagonist), then there are also limitations and comparisons to your earlier films and performances."

Vijay Sethupathi's latest film

Vijay's 50th film, Maharaja, was released on June 14. The Nithilan Saminathan directorial also stars filmmaker-actor Anurag Kashyap. An excerpt from the Hindustan Times’ review of Maharaja read, “Nithilan has presented us a slow-burning thriller. In the first half, we see numerous characters come into play and they seem irrelevant but as you get to the intermission, you realise there are bigger things at play. It’s in the second half that you begin to connect the dots and figure out why Maharaja is a determined man on a relentless mission to find Lakshmi.”
