The title and first-look posters of actor Vijay’s upcoming film were revealed last evening; the film has been titled strangely as Mersal which literally doesn’t have a direct meaning in Tamil.
Shoot of Vijay’s 61st film is now in progress. It has Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha and Nithya Menen as the trio of heroines opposite Vijay who is said to be essaying 3-4 roles in the film. This would be the second film under the combination of director Atlee Kumar and Vijay after Theri which released in January, 2016.
The crew of the film decided to release the title and first-look yesterday on the eve of Vijay’s 43rd birthday today (22nd June). Vijay poses in what appears to be a Jallikkattu backdrop and it is rumoured that he plays a bull-fighter in the film.
Vijay’s fans went ga-ga over the release of the film’s title and first-looks and started sharing/downloading them soon after. Whether Vijay and Atlee manage to strike gold at the box-office for the second time in two years is something only time can tell!
