It was last evening, the production house announced that Vijay 61's first look and title would be revealed on 22 June, 6pm, on the eve of his birthday. Since then, the Tamil star has taken social media by storm! #Thalapathy61 and #HBDVijay have been trending on social media like crazy. Fans have gone berserk but then again it's not surprising considering it's Ilayathalapathy Vijay we are talking about here. As promised, at 6pm sharp, Sri Thenandal films revealed the first look and title of their 100th film. The movie is called Mersal. Unlike his stylish first look for Bairavaa, Vijay has gone in for a massy avatar! With his signature smile and his simple yet traditional avatar, Vijay has given us one killer first look. We are also intrigued by the Jalikkattu background. Will this bull festival play an important role in the film? We can only guess for now. Fans have already given the first look and title a thumbs up! Also Read: This Diwali just got epic as Thalapathy 61 gears up for a grand release, first look out in June
This film will mark Atlee and Vijay's second collaboration. Reportedly, the film is set in different time periods. The movie features a stellar cast - Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Nithya Menen and Sathyaraj. This film is banrolled by Sri Thenandal films. This film is extra special because it's Vijay's 61st project and Thenandal Film's 100th project. The last time Atlee and Vijay came together, they created Theri that became a runaway hit at the box office. Vijay also received glowing reviews for his performance as an on screen father.
