Vijay Sethupathi's Affair and Relationship with Jessie

vijay sethupathi wife

Vijay Sethupathi, the actor, who is married to Jessie, frequently attributes his achievement to her. But he hasn't spoken about their love story all that often.

Vijay Sethupathi had one-sided relationships with other people while he was at college and working, but he never dared to propose to them. Later, after he had a solid career and was settled in life, he met a female online.

Vijay Sethupathi and Jessie’s love story hasn't been extensively discussed. You might be shocked to learn that the actor and his ladylove initially connected through online chat. To meet and interact with people, we now have platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder, but almost 18 years ago, the only social media platforms available were Orkut and Yahoo Messenger.

Although the two met through mutual friends, it was their constant communication that grew their relationship. According to Manorama interview with the actor in 2018: Even before we really met, we grew close. When I worked in Dubai, Jessy was also there. We developed a close relationship via conversing online.

According to the article, when Vijay and Jessy's families learned about their connection, they were not pleased. The couple had to exert a lot of pressure to win their support for the wedding. According to the story, Vijay met his wife for the first time on the day of their engagement.

Vijay Sethupathi once met Jessy online, and a week after their initial encounter, he proposed to her. Surprisingly, Jessy gave him her approval right away, and five months after that day, they were married in Kerala. 

Vijay Sethupathi and Jessie married in 2003. They have a son named Surya and a daughter named Shreeja.


Vijay Sethupathi's Struggles

Vijay Sethupathi was a workaholic. Vijay Sethupathi claims he earned his way through college by taking on a few part-time jobs. While I was a student, I worked as an accountant in a fast food restaurant, a textile showroom, a phone booth, and an auditor's office. My father thought it was strange, but he never influenced any of my choices. Sethupathi's first actual job after graduating from college paid him Rs 3,500 per month as a cement salesman. From 9 am to 7:30 pm, I used to work there. Then, between eight o'clock and midnight, I would man a phone booth. That would give me about 1,200 rupees. I had to provide for my family because my father's job was not earning enough, he explains.

In November 2000, Vijay Sethupathi moved to Dubai in pursuit of a better life and job. It paid about Rs 12,000 and was also an accounting position, he claims. Just a few months after his marriage, he caught the acting bug while working in the sales division of a friend's interior design company. I used to be a great model. I was photographed a lot by my brother while I was in Dubai. I envisioned myself as a potential movie star. But there was a problem: I knew nothing about movies. I don't believe in luck, therefore I realized I needed some professional training if I wanted to have any chance of succeeding. 

I then learned that Koothu-P-Pattarai [a well-known Tamil theater company in Chennai] provided workshops for budding actors. He was disappointed to discover that they had stopped offering their acting training, but an accountant position was open.It paid terribly poorly, yet I chose to accept the position without even informing my family. I figured I could watch the performers who would show there and learn, Sethupathi explains. I accepted the chance because my kids were still young. When my wife learned, she was quite upset and forced me to make a commitment that I would stop. But I persisted, and she gave up trying to talk me out of it, he adds.


Vijay Sethupathi then performed a street drama on the tsunami in over 50 villages while still in Pattarai. He claims that he shed all my inhibitions and it gave me confidence. I've always believed that acting is a natural talent. The idea that actors should realize the craft of acting via their training was one of the first things I overheard them express at Koothu-P-Pattarai.

Vijay Sethupathi started out as a background actor, often appearing in movies as the companion of the main character. He also appeared in a number of short films for the Kalaignar TV television program Nalaya Iyakunar as well as various television series, including the well-known one Penn, which premiered in March 2006. 

He collaborated with Karthik Subbaraj on a number of short films, and after Karthik Subbaraj hired him for his first feature film, one of his short films won the Best Actor prize at the Norway Tamil Film Festival short film competition.

Vijay Sethupathi’s Controversy


Vijay Sethupathi Fighting at the airport

As a result of his crew being seen fighting a man at the Bangalore airport, Vijay Sethupathi has found himself in controversy once more. An explanation of the airport incident has now been circulated online under the name of Vijay Sethupathi. Arjun Sampath, a divisive politician from the Indhu Makkal Katchi, has also offered a cash incentive of Rs. 1,000 to anyone who can kick Vijay Sethupathi.

Vijay Sethupathi gave clarification While I was waiting for a flight to Bangalore, a man came up to me. He came up to me in a confused manner. I promised to talk more later. Then he said, You are also my caste as I am also an actor, in a louder tone. Contrary to what he alleges, however, I made no mention of the country, religion, or our holy Pasumpon Ayya, who regarded Tamils as his life. Then, taking into account his fragile state, I accepted his apologies. Fans are familiar with my demeanor towards them. But if he keeps disparaging me, I won't think twice about taking the necessary steps, the statement says.

The person who claims to have attacked Vijay Sethupathi's team, Maha Gandhi, had before accused the actor of disrespecting his congratulations after the actor won the National Award. Maha Gandhi further asserted that Vijay Sethupathi's entourage attacked him first. However, Maha Gandhi does not know the names of the attackers and is awaiting identification from the airport's CCTV footage.


Vijay Sethupathi cutting cake with sword

The Chennai police are thinking about filing a criminal complaint against actor Vijay Sethupathi after a photo of him slicing his birthday cake with a sword went popular on social media. 

The 43-year-old actor also apologized for the incident in a statement. His statement reads, My sincere gratitude to movie stars and fans who sent me birthday wishes. A picture that was shot three days ago while I was celebrating my birthday is currently the subject of debate. I used a sword to slice my birthday cake in the picture. In the movie I'll be in, directed by Ponram, the sword will be significant. I used the sword to cut my cake since Ponram and the team was there to help me celebrate my birthday.

It was noted by many that this was a poor example. I'm going to start being careful now. I apologize and regret my action if I hurt anyone. Police did, however, say that they are looking into hiring legal counsel. They also mentioned how the Chennai police had previously detained neighborhood thugs for slicing a cake with a sword, indicating that what Vijay did was unlawful and that he should be detained.

A Madras Court attorney named Karthikeyan stated, The law is the same for everyone. Vijay Sethupathi should be charged by the police for slicing his birthday cake with a sword.


Vijay Sethupathi and cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan controversy

Vijay Sethupathi's choice to portray Muralitharan, who is thought to have backed the Lankan government during the civil war with the LTTE, in the movie 800 caused controversy. 

Many point out that there is video and news reports indicating the cricketer's apparent support for Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the island nation's President who served as the wartime defense secretary, and other remarks made toward the end of the civil war, despite Muttiah Muralitharan's own attempts to explain his case and claim that he never treated Eelam Tamils with disrespect citing his own Tamil origin.

Film industry leaders in Tamil Nadu, including Bharathiraja, Ameer, Thamarai, and Cheran, as well as a state lawmaker named Kadambur C. Raju, had issued statements pleading with Vijay Sethupathi to drop the movie considering the sensitivities of Tamil people.

Muralitharan requested Vijay Sethupathi to withdraw from the project in a statement. Vijay Sethupathi posted the statement and thanked the cricketer.
