Vijay Sethupathi, being a busy actor who is a part of multiple projects, is currently said to be working out on the dates and is most likely to make himself available for the film.

Several reports have even confirmed that Vijay Sethupathi has been locked for the role, but official confirmation on the same is awaited. If this happens to be true, it would be great to witness Shah Rukh Khan and Vijay Sethupathi together in a single frame and the fans are surely in for a visual treat.
