One of Kollywood's most loved actors Vijay Sethupathi was all set to make his Bollywood debut via Amir Khan starrer 'Laal Singh Chaddha', a Bollywood remake of the hit movie 'Forrest Gump'.

However, the actor recently dropped out of the movie and rumours started making rounds that he was unable to reduce the required weight for his Bollywood role.

But now, Vijay Sethupathi finally reveals the actual reason behind his decision and clarified that it has nothing to do with losing weight.

He clarified that he immediately agreed to the movie as Amir Khan came down to meet him in person to explain the story, but had to drop out due to his packed schedule which went haywire after the lockdown.

He further explained that he's still working on five Telugu movies in various stages of production which were supposed to complete earlier if it wasn't for the pandemic which halted the shooting.

And due to that, he couldn't accommodate the Bollywood movie on the promised date.
