Vijay Sethupathi says, “People perceive me as simple, but it’s not true.”

Dismissing the notion that he is a simple person, Sethupathi added, “People perceive me as simple, but it’s not true. If I feel at ease, I could even emulate James Bond. Please, I don’t want this simplicity label,” he concluded with a warm smile, eliciting laughter from Katrina as well.
