The much awaited audio of launch of superstar Vijay’s Mersal, which has music by AR Rahman, will take place in Chennai’s Nehru stadium on August 20. The event is going to be organized in a big way and it is believed Rahman will perform at the function, according to reliable sources from the film’s unit. If Rahman indeed performs at the event, it will be the biggest highlight of the audio launch.

In Mersal, Vijay plays triple roles. According to reliable sources, he will be seen as a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician. The actor’s comic timing will be brought forth on screen through the magician’s role. His portions are intended to evoke laughter and lighten up the mood. In the film’s first poster, released recently, Vijay can be seen as the panchayat head, sporting a twirled mustache, and this role will be seen in the period portion. There is Jallikattu reference in this poster and it could be perceived that the film may address the recent Jallikattu row in Tamil Nadu. Vijay is seen as a magician in the second poster and although it wasn’t as well received as the first, fans still celebrated both the posters.

Bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Studios, the film stars Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen as Vijay’s love interests. Actor-filmmaker SJ Suryah is playing the antagonist and since his terrific performance in last year’s Iraivi, audiences are keenly looking forward to see him lock horns with Vijay. The film, directed by Atlee, is gearing up for grand release this Diwali.
