Vijay Sethupathi: All Upcoming Movies and TV Shows in 2024 and 2025

Although predominantly associated with working in Tamil movies, Vijaya Gurunatha Sethupathi, popularly known as Vijay Sethupathi, has been able to rise to prominence, mainly thanks to his regular features in Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada language films. Formerly an NRI accountant in Dubai, Vijay began his film career from the bottom and made his way to the top as he started out as a background actor and portrayed minor characters before landing his first lead role, which came in Seenu Ramasamy’s 2010 film ‘Thenmerku Paruvakaatru.’ In a couple of years, Vijay managed to amass a huge following with his role in several critical and commercially successful films, including ‘Sundarapandian,’ ‘Pizza,’ and ‘Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom.’

Vijay further cemented his place amongst the biggest South Indian actors by working in multiple Tamil films, such as ‘Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara,’ ‘Pannaiyarum Padminiyum,’ ‘Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum,’ ‘Iraivi,’ ‘Vikram Vedha,’ ‘Super Deluxe,’ and ‘Vikram.’ Given his compelling performances throughout his acting career, there are numerous accolades to his name, including a National Film Award, two Filmfare Awards South, and two Tamil Nadu State Film Awards. With his latest negative stint in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Jawan,’ many of our readers must be looking forward to Vijay’s upcoming projects.
