- Mersal is Vijay and director Atlee's second collaboration
- AR Rahman has composed the music for the film
Watch the teaser of Mersal:
The first look of Mersal released in June and like the teaser today, it went crazy viral too. Take a look:
Mersal reunites Vijay with his former co-stars Kajal Aggarwal (in Jilla) and Samantha Ruth Prabhu (in Kaththi) and Nithya Menen. None of the three actresses feature in the film's first teaser. Mersal is Vijay's 61st film and second film with Atlee, who also directed Vijay in 2016's Tamil blockbuster Theri (co-starring Samantha). Nithya Menen replaced actress Jyothika in Mersal after she opted out due to date issues. The film also stars Kovai Sarala and SJ Suryah.
Mersal, produced by Sri Thenandal Studios, will be Vijay's second release of the year after Bairavaa, which hit the screens earlier this year.
