The wait to see the glimpse of Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s Mersal has finally ended. The makers released the teaser on 21st September.

At least the fans don’t have to keep themselves awake till midnight and can sleep peacefully. This is Atlee’s second outing with Vijay after the blockbuster Theri that released last year.
Mersal is made on a whopping budget of 120 Crore INR and is the biggest film of Vijay’s career. The movie is bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Films and this is their 100th film.

Recently, the title Mersal was trademarked, making it the first South Indian film to do so. And now with the release of the teaser, fans are going insane over Mersal.
Vijay will be seen playing a triple role and romancing Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, and Nithya Menen. SJ Suryah will be the antagonist. Rahman’s soundtrack adds more value to the film.
