I didn’t say I Love You to my wife: Vijay Sethupathi

Vijay Sethupathi was asked how he manages to stay fearless despite being such a big star, or not letting the baggage of stardom affect his film choices. In response, Vijay Sethupathi began with a completely off-route anecdote, recalling, “When I was in Dubai, I was in love with my wife,” immediately sending the audience into laughter. The actor smilingly asked them to calm down and listen to the entire anecdote.

Sethupathi then proceeded to clarify that since him and his wife had met on the Internet on Yahoo chat website, they hadn’t ever met each other in person. He added, “When I confessed my feelings to her, it had hardly been a week. And I didn’t begin with saying, “I love you.” I directly asked her if she would marry me."
