Following the commercial success of his cop thriller Theri, Vijay is reuniting with director Atlee for Mersal, which is arguably the most anticipated Tamil release of 2017.
The makers on Wednesday released a new poster of the movie which features Vijay in a uber-stylish avatar. Going by the looks of the film, Mersal is all set to be a blockbuster.
Earlier in August, the team hosted a grand audio launch and the songs have been well-received by fans, especially Aalaporan Thamizhan. AR Rahman is in charge of the music department.
In case you did not know, ‘Mersal’ is touted to be an action-drama and has been directed by Atlee. It has already created a buzz amongst fans thanks to its gripping teaser and could turn out to be a big winner at the box office. Besides Vijay, it also features Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menen and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in the lead. Actor-filmmaker SJ Suryah too is a part of the cast and will be seen in a negative role here. He had recently said that he agreed to do ‘Mersal’ because of Atlee passionate narration.
“I was mind-blown by how he enacted the whole narration of Mersal, especially its flashback portions. I was concerned about playing a villain again, but I accepted it right away because of Atlee’s narration,” he had added.
On a related note, this will be Vijay’s second release of 2017. He was last seen in ‘Bairavaa’. An action –drama, it also had Keerthy Suresh in the lead.
