Vijay’s upcoming film, Mersal’s teaser broke records on the internet. The film directed by Atlee has got more than five lakh likes in less than two hours. It has already created a buzz amongst fans thanks to its posters, and not trailer and will be one of the biggest releases of the year. AR Rahman’s background score gives the teaser boost. The film is touted to be an action drama with high-octane stunts being performed by Vijay.
Fans have been going gaga over Vijay’s avatar as MGR fan. MGR posters can be seen throughout the teaser. Vijay can be seen fighting with someone at a theatre which is playing MGR’s ‘Ulaikum Karangal’. An international opera sequence is also shown in the teaser.
“Mersal is special for me. I admire director Atlee’s confidence and his ability to execute things,” said Vijay during the music launch, “I’ve given hits and blockbusters but what I’ve truly earned is my fans.”
In the teaser, the dialogue said is, “Nee Pattra Vaitha Neruppu ondru, pattri eriya unnai ketkum. Nee Vidhaita vinai ellam, unnai arruka kaathirukkum,” which loosely translates to, ‘the fire that has been set by you, shall be the fire you will be on, the karma that you have sowed is waiting to cut you.’
This will be the second association for Vijay with noted director Atlee. Vijay will be playing three roles in the film. The teaser showcases two of his looks. The director said, “Mersal will be a classy, commercial film about the Tamil identity.”
Mersal also stars Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen and is slated for release during Diwali.
