Thalapathy Vijay’s ‘Mersal’, one of the most anticipated films of the year, is all set to hit screens on Diwali. First look posters, teasers, trailers and singles of the film have been getting excellent responses from the fans. The latest news is that iconic director SS Rajamouli has predicted that this Atlee film will be a mega hit.
In Mersal, Vijay will be seen playing a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician. The film, which also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen, marks the second collaboration of Atlee and Vijay. Produced by Sri Thenandal Studios, the film has music by AR Rahman and also stars SJ Suryah in a key role. In a video, the ‘Bahubali’ director said, « SS Thenandal Films 100th movie is being done by two legends (AR Rahman sir and Vijay sir), who are in their 25th year. And, both of them are working in Atlee sir’s direction. What a fantastic film to look forward to. I am sure it will be a fantastic hit. »
The Telugu dubbed version titled ‘Adirindhi’ will be released along with the Tamil version. It can be noted that the script for Mersal has been written by Rajamouli’s father KV Vijayendra Prasad, who is also the script writer of Bahubali 1 and 2.
