Although he has nine Tamil films in his kitty and is considered one of the busiest actors in filmdom, Vijay Sethupathi doesn't "jump" to signing films and says he scans script thoroughly before zeroing on any project.
"I don't jump to signing films one after another. I take special interest in the script of every film I sign. It's very important that the script should impress me... I loved the script of my upcoming film and, therefore, did everything to be part of the project," Vijay told IANS.
"I'm currently busy with nine projects, but I take out time to work on one project at a time because I like to prioritise my work," he added.
Vijay will be seen as a 40-year-old man in his upcoming Tamil comedy "Soodhu Kavvum".
"It was not an easy role to play. I had to gain weight, grow beard and behave as a 40-year-old. It was challenging, but that's what made it exciting for me," said the actor, who is in his thirties.
He is currently busy shooting for "Rummy", "Pannaiyarum Padminiyum", "Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara" and "Sangudevan" besides an untitled Seenu Ramaswamy project and three more films in the pipeline.
Vijay rose to fame with blockbuster Tamil films such as "Pizza" and "Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kannom" which were released last year. The former is being remade in Kannada and Hindi.
