John Vijay talks about why he couldn’t act in Vijay Sethupathi and Madhavan’s Vikram Vedha

Actor John Vijay, who is an established actor is known for his quirky dialogue delivery and unique mannerisms as an actor. The actor was part of Pushkar Gayathri’s previous films Oram Po and Va (2010). In an exclusive interview with Behindwoods, he talks about why he was not a part of Vikram Vedha. He said:


I was badly wanting to but didn’t act in Vikram Vedha. In fact after narrating the story to Vijay Sethupathi and Madhavan, Pushkar-Gayathri called me to tell me the story. However, I was stuck with Dulquer Salmaan’s Comrade in America. CIA’s shoot was set in the United States of America.

However hard Pushkar Gayathri tried to fit in my dates, I was not able to make it for Vikram Vedha and I am eagerly waiting to act in their next film.

John Vijay on his upcoming projects

John Vijay was seen in Kabali as a trustworthy lieutenant of Superstar Rajinikanth. He is a multifaceted personality having directed 70 odd ads, worked with big stars, bagged a gold medal in body language and many other credits to his repertoire. We chat with the talented artist.

After Kabali
Immediately after Kabali, when I was shooting for a film, someone asked me how I am working in a small budget film. I told them that everything is cinema.  For me, all the films are Kabali only. Right from my childhood, I give in 200% to the work that has been assigned to me and I will continue to do so in future too.


How do you choose your films?
I don’t ask for the story. I ask for my character and believe that when a director has faith in me and approaches me I will respect his call. At the end of the day, we all work for audience’s support.

I would like to entertain my audience and keep trying out different things.  I rely on my director’s vision, which helps in bringing variations in characters. I don’t claim myself to be a method actor.

Films ready for release and roles in them
Veera Sivaji- It will be a new makeover for me in this film. I will be sporting a stylized don kind of look speaking English.

Kadalai- It will be a Diwali release. My character is someone who returns home after studying abroad. Since it is a village based film, I will not much mouth English words there. It is a comedy flick with a good message about farming.

Ulkuthu- My role again will be different. You will sympathize with my character.  It is a small role but will fetch me a good name.

Shankara- Telugu remake of Mounaguru which will be a Diwali release.

I also have Asurakulam, Pattinapaakkam and other films which would soon be released.


Upcoming projects
I am doing a Malayalam film with director Amal Neerad featuring Dulquer Salmaan. I will be going to the USA for the shooting.  I have also begun a film titled 88 with Vidharth as the lead directed by a newcomer.


We wish you the best John Vijay!
