Chennai: Actor Vijay Sethupathi, who has donned an urban look for his upcoming Tamil film `Mellisai`, says he is not conscious about how he looks on screen and merely follows his director`s instructions.

"I don`t have any inhibitions of how I look on screen. I just follow my director`s instructions. In `Mellisai`, my director wanted an urban look with a fresh haircut and I obliged. I`m not a superstar to worry about my looks. I`d rather worry about my performance," Vijay said.

In his career so far, Vijay has mostly appeared on screen with his unkempt hair and dense beard.

"I haven`t maintained any look. Had the directors of my previous films asked me to cut my hair or change my looks, I would have changed it," he said.

`Mellisai`, which is gearing up for summer release, is directed by debutant Ranjith Jeyakodi. It features Gayathrie Shankar as the female lead.
