Actor Vijay has presented gold coins to the crew members and technicians of his upcoming film which has been titled oddly as Mersal (a typical colloquial local Tamil term, used mostly in Chennai referring to something ‘amazing’).
Vijay reportedly plays a Jallikkattu fighter in the film produced by Sri Thenandal Films and directed by Atlee Kumar, who had earlier made the super-hit Vijay-starrer Theri. Curvaceous Kajal Aggarwal, the soon-to-be-married Samantha and the talented Nithaya Menen play the female leads in the film and as the promotional still photos haven’t yet been released, it is not clear as to who is paired up opposite Vijay.
The film’ shoot has entered its final stages and it is said that Vijay has completed his portion of the film’s shoot including the all-important climax. Now that he is done with the film, Vijay has surprised the technicians and crew members of his Mersal team by presenting gold coins to them.
It is informed that the film’s audio would be released on 20th August to be followed by the film’s release in theatres in October during Deepavali.
