It looks like Vijay Sethupathi has downright refused to play the leading man opposite Krithi Shetty in his upcoming films, according to reports. The actor revealed in a recent interaction that he discouraged those who had dropped Krithi's name as heroine for his upcoming film.
The Vijay Sethupathi-Krithi Shetty conundrum
In the 2021 Telugu film Uppena, Krithi Shetty and Vijay Sethupathi had shared screen space together. However, Krithi played Sangeetha Bebbamma, daughter of Kotagiri Sesha Raayanam essayed by Vijay Sethupathi. Vijay Sethupathi stated that since he has played her father once, he couldn't romance her. He added that the team of his upcoming film believed that Krithi Shetty would be ideal as VJS's heroine.
Sethupathi stated that once he saw Krithi's picture, he asked the team to avoid her as heroine as he could not play her love interest after portraying her father in a previous venture.
He also recalled the time where Krithi was confused about a scene in the Telugu film. VJS had then advised her that his son was as old as Krithi and that he later encouraged her, just like he would do to his son.
