The Makkal Selvan of Tamil Industry Vijay Sethupathi is debuting in Mollywood with Jayaram's Marconi Mathayi. He plays himself in the movie. But Vijay says that he was a bit apprehensive to step into the Malayalam Industry as it has been blessed with many talented actors. Also, he wanted to do justice to his roles when he acts in a language he is not fluent with. He says that he cherishes the love which Malayalees had showered on him after watching 96 and does not want to misuse the love. He also did not want somebody to dub his portions as people are familiar with his voice. Since he plays himself, he speaks Tamil in the film and hence he was satisfied with his debut Mollywood entry.
