According to reports, Tamil superstar Vijay’s latest release ‘Mersal’ has fallen victim to piracy. The whole movie has been leaked online and is available for ‘free downloading’. This, apparently, happened shortly after the film’s overseas premiere. Needless to say, this is going to take a toll on its box office collections.
Interestingly, piracy is a big problem for the Tamil film industry and has been haunting it for quite a while. A short while ago, actor Vishal—who is the President of the Tamil Film Producers’ council—had decided to form squads and monitor theatres in Chennai in order to curb piracy. It remains to be seen how Vishal and co react to the latest piracy row.
n case you did not know, ‘Mersal’ is an action-drama and has been directed by Atlee. In it, ‘Thalapathy’ plays a triple role. The film had created a record even before hitting screens when the makers got its title trademarked. Besides Vijay, it also has Nithya Menen, Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in the lead.
A few days ago, Nithya had said that her character is the ‘emotional pillar’ of ‘Mersal’.
“My character is the emotional pillar in the film which sets the tone for the rest of the events. What I really liked is how Atlee treated the two principal characters in the flashback episode, which is quite different when you think of a big budget commercial film,” she had added.
