Ahead of the release of Vidhuthalai, actor Soori gave an exclusive Interview to Galatta Media where he shared experiences from the film. Soori and Vijay Sethupathi have acted in supporting roles in the film Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu and Soori and Sivakarthikeyan share a great friendship, the anchor raised the question about if they spoke about this on set. Soori said “We know each other and become acquaintances from the Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu. While I was searching for opportunities, he was also doing the same. He’s a great actor. During the dubbing work for the film, there will be a scene where he gets convulsions. Sethupathi will be watching the scene. Acting is easy but acting during dubbing is difficult. Sethupathi did that exact sequence where he gets convulsion for a minute or so and after that cut and the engineer praised him in one take. It was extraordinary. He likes me. From that time, he will encourage me to become an actor saying doesn't think of yourself as a comedian and ask me to do more acting roles. It was how I grew as an actor and then I did many films and my combination with SK (sivakarthikeyan) became a hit so we did many films together. Then, coming to Viduthala and seeing Sethu as a big hero, I was really happy. First in the set. He called me in front of the director and thanked Vetri Maaran for giving me this opportunity. And jokingly said to me 'hero sir I will act with you sir'. I asked why he did that and he said to Vetri Maaran 'Soori is an actor sir, I asked him to do character roles. Instead of that, he did comedian roles'. Vijay Sethupathi said to me being a comedian is also not easy but I should not draw a circle and say I will do only this. he said to Vetri Maaran that he have made his wish come true. and thanked him"
About Sivakarthikeyan he said "I spoke about the film first to Sivakarthikeyan brother and not to even my wife. He was very happy" and assures he will always act with Sivakarthikeyan in supporting roles.
