The highly anticipated teaser of Vijay’s Mersal will be released on September 21, the makers have announced. It’s being released on that day because it happens to be the birthday of the film’s director Atlee.

Vijay’s fans have been waiting with bated breath for the teaser and are looking forward to receive the teaser with much fanfare. Instead of opting to unveil the teaser at midnight, which has become a norm of sorts for most big films, the makers of Mersal chose to release it at 6 pm and this has come as a sigh of relief for the fans who don’t have to spend a sleepless night.

Mersal is one of the most anticipated releases of this year and is slated to hit the screens this Diwali. The film marks his second successive collaboration with Vijay after last year’s blockbuster Theri. In the film, Vijay plays triple role and he will be seen as a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician. The film also stars Nithya Menen, Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha Ruth Prabhu as Vijay’s love interests while SJ Suryah plays the antagonist. The film has music by A.R Rahman and has been produced by Sri Thenandal Films.

Tipped to be made on a whopping budget of Rs 130 crore, Mersal is the most expensive film in Vijay’s career, superseding Puli which was made on a budget of Rs 100 crore. It needs to be seen whether Mersal, given its very high budget, can strike big at the box-office or not. The film has been dubbed in Telugu as Adhirindi, and it will have a simultaneous release with its Tamil version.
