Actor Vijay’s upcoming film with director Atlee, that was being referred to as Vijay 61, has been titled MERSAL. The makers of the film, Sri Thenandal Films, released the first look poster and the title of the film today on social media amidst much fanfare. After much speculation about the title of the film, the makers have fixed the title of the film as MERSAL. Social media erupted with responses from the fans of the Ilayathalapathy.
The first look of Vijay in MERSAL looks quite impressive with Vijay dusting his hands and making the poster look more heroic. Directed by Atlee, MERSAL will have music composed by musical genius A R Rahman.
MERSAL is considered to be the most interesting film in Vijay’s career since the story of the film is written by Baahubali writer K. Vijayendra Prasad. Having given two blockbuster hits in Indian cinema – Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali – Vijayendra Prasad is now the most sought after writer in Indian cinema.
Meaning astonished or stunned in English, MERSAL is quite a unique title for a Vijay’s film and this has certainly raised the expectations of Vijay’s fans all the more.
MERSAL also features Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen in the female lead roles. Interestingly, MERSAL wil be Sri Thenandal Films’ 100th film as producers and hence will be quite prodigious for them as the producers.
Ilayathalapathy Vijay was last seen in Bhairavaa which was an action-drama. Bhairavaa was directed by Bharathan and featured Keerthy Suresh in the lead.
