It’s raining views for Vijay’s Mersal teaser, which has in its first 24 hours clocked over 10 million views and as of now is inching close to 15 million. According to the makers, it’s also the most liked Indian film teaser, even surpassing SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali franchise and Ajith’s Vivegam. The teaser has been trending for many hours and it has set the right expectations for the film. The minute-long teaser, powered by AR Rahman’s music and stunning frames of debutant Vishnu, it gives us the glimpse of Vijay in triple roles.

Mersal is one of the most anticipated releases of this year and it is slated to hit the screens this Diwali. Directed by Atlee, the film marks his second successive collaboration with Vijay after last year’s blockbuster Theri. In the film, Vijay 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. Tipped to be made on a lavish budget, the film has music by AR 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 his 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.
