Vijay is not just a mass star, but an excellent actor!
The first look posters of Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s upcoming movie Mersal are trending virally in social medias. The posters were released on Wednesday, the eve of Vijay’s 43rd birthday. Director Atlee and Vijay are rejoining for Mersal after the blockbuster success of Theri and naturally expectations are huge among the audience.
Mersal is a landmark movie for the producers, Sri Thenandal Films. It is the 100th movie to be produced by this prestigious banner. Hema Rukmani, the CEO of Thenandal Films is all praise for Vijay. She says that Vijay is not just a mass star, but also an outstanding actor.
“Most people look at Vijay as a mass actor. But, I’ve seen him perform. He’s an outstanding actor. I’ve noticed a lot of things during shooting. His sense of continuity is brilliant. He will know even the minutest details like where and how he kept his hand or leg during a particular shot. Whether the assistant director remembers or not, he will know. I had the great joy of watching him improvise. In the whole Europe schedule, I was there every day on set. So, I could see him improvise, and it’s a treat. He has a charm of him which crosses borders and boundaries,” Hema told PTI.
Hema adds that the movie has come out really well. She confirms that the audience will love Vijay even more after watching the movie. Three-fourths of the movie is complete and shoot for the remaining portions are currently underway.
Mersal has Vijay in a triple role, which is a first in his career. Nithya Menen, Kajal Agarwal and Samantha Ruth Prabhu are playing the female leads. Oscar award winner AR Rahman is handling the music department. Mersal is slated to hit screens worldwide for this year’s Diwali in October.
