The national award for Vijay Sethupathi for the best supporting role for his performance in Tamil game changer by Thiagarajan Kumararaja Super Deluxe as a transgender man coming out, to his grandson’s utter confusion, is not only well deserved, it is a recognition of the growing socio-political awareness of diversity in sexuality.
Akshay Kumar also played a transgender in 2020 in Laxmmi. However, Vijay Sethupathi’s performance is a class act. Expressing his joy for the national award for a performance that broke many taboo barriers, Vijay Sethupathi spoke to me the morning after the national award was announced.
He was grateful to his Super Deluxe team for attempting what seems impossible. “I would like to thank my director Thiagarajan Kumararaja for the way my role in Super Deluxe was written and how it turned out. He wrote and performed it very well. When you have such a strong character on paper, playing the part becomes relatively easy for the actor. “
Did Vijay have any reservations about playing transgender Shilpa in Super Deluxe? “Not at all. As an actor, I’m always hungry. I’m constantly on the lookout for roles that will take me out of the comfort zone. Safe roles bore me to death. I want to explore the side the most. dark human personality. That’s why I take on the bad guys. I want to explore what makes them what they are. “
Was it difficult for Vijay to dress and behave like a woman? “Not at all. Once I entered the Saree, I thought and behaved like Shilpa. Maybe when you say you don’t see Vijay Sethupathi on the screen that’s what you mean . When I played Shilpa, I was Shilpa. The credit goes only to the director because I didn’t know how to approach the character. I am so lucky to have played Shilpa. I hope this national award will encourage more people to watch Super Deluxe. The more people see it, the more women like Shilpa are trapped in men’s bodies. “
