He later joined the Chennai-based theater group Koothu-P-Pattarai as an accountant and actor where he observed the actors closely.

Vijay Sethupathi Biography in Hindi:
विजय सेतुपति एक लोकप्रिय दक्षिण भारतीय अभिनेता हैं, जो फिल्मों में अपने बहुमुखी अभिनय कौशल और गतिशील प्रदर्शन के लिए जाने जाते हैं। उनका जन्म 16 जनवरी 1978 को राजपालयम, तमिलनाडु, भारत में हुआ था। सेठूपाथी जब क्लास 6 में थे, तब वह चेन्नई शिफ्ट हो गए जहा वह उत्तर चेन्नई के Ennore में रहे। उन्होंने MGR Higher Secondary School, Kodambakkam और Little Angels Mat Hr Sec School से अपनी स्कूलिंग शिक्षा पूरी की।
सेठूपाथी ने एक इंटरव्यू में खुलासा करते हुए बताया कि वह पढ़ाई में बहुत ही कमजोर थे। वह अपने स्कूल के दिनो मे ना तो खेल में रुचि रखते थे और ना ही किसी एक्स्ट्रा करिकुलर एक्टिविटीज में। 16 साल की उम्र में उन्होंने फिल्म Nammavar (1994) के लिए ऑडिशन दिया था, लेकिन अपनी छोटी हाइट के कारण वह रिजेक्ट हो गए थे। उन्होंने अपने पॉकेट मनी के लिए एक रिटेल स्टोर में सेल्समैन, एक फास्ट फूड ज्वाइंट पर कैशियर और एक फोन बूथ ऑपरेटर जैसे कई छोटे मोटे काम किए।
उन्होंने Thoraipakam में Dhanraj Baid Jain College से बैचलर ऑफ कॉमर्स में ग्रेजुएशन किया। अपनी कॉलेज की पढ़ाई खत्म करने के एक हफ्ते बाद ही वह एक थोक सीमेंट व्यवसाय में अकाउंट असिस्टेंट के रूप में शामिल हो गए। उन्होंने अपनी मेहनत की कमाई से अपने 3 भाई बहनों का ख्याल रखा। सेठूपथि जितना पैसा भारत में काम रहे थे, उससे 4 गुना ज्यादा पैसा कमाने का ऑफर दुबई, यूएई में मिला, जिसके बाद वह दुबई शिफ्ट हो गए।
हालांकि, कुछ साल काम करने के बाद अपने नौकरी से नाखुश होकर वह 2003 में भारत लौट आए। इसके बाद वह अपने दोस्तो के साथ एक मार्केटिंग कंपनी जो रेडीमेड रसोई का कारोबार करती थी, उसमे वह इंटीरियर डेकोरेशन के व्यवसाय में जुड़ गए। काम करने के दौरान जब उन्होंने Koothupattarai का पोस्टर देखा तब उन्होंने फिल्म निर्देशक Balu Mahendra की उस टिप्पणी को याद किया कि उनका चेहरा बहुत फोटोजेनिक था और फिल्मों में करियर बनाने को लेकर मोटिवेट किया।
बाद में वह चेन्नई स्थित थिएटर ग्रुप Koothu-P-Pattarai में एक अकाउंटेंट और अभिनेता के तौर पर शामिल हो गए जहा उन्होंने अभिनेताओं को करीब से देखा। विजय सेतुपति ने अपने करियर की शुरुआत एक पृष्ठभूमि अभिनेता के रूप में की और 2010 में फिल्म “थेनमेरकु परुवाकात्रु” से सफलता हासिल करने से पहले फिल्मों में छोटी भूमिकाएँ निभाईं।
उन्होंने “पिज्जा”, “नाडुवुला कोनजम पक्कथा कानोम”, “सुधु कव्वुम” और “विक्रम वेधा” जैसी फिल्मों में अपने अभिनय से पहचान हासिल की। वह कई तेलुगु और हिंदी फिल्मों में भी दिखाई दिए हैं और उनके काम को समीक्षकों द्वारा सराहा गया है और कई पुरस्कार और प्रशंसाएं मिली हैं। उन्हें दक्षिण भारतीय फिल्म उद्योग में सबसे प्रतिभाशाली अभिनेताओं में से एक माना जाता है और उनके बहुत बड़े प्रशंसक हैं।
