Vijay sir has always been an inspiration, I’ll be watching Mersal on the first day itself: Dhanush
The audio launch event of Vijay’s upcoming movie Mersal was one of the biggest events in Tamil cinema history. The event was made special the presence of many celebrities, thousands of fans and a live performance from the maestro AR Rahman. Vijay’s short but powerful speech was the icing on the cake.
Mersal’s audio launch function was celebrated in such a grand manner for three major reasons- this year marks the 25th anniversary of both AR Rahman and Vijay’s entry to the film industry. Mersal is also the 100th venture of Sri Thenandal Films, one of the most prestigious banners in Kollywood.

“Today is indeed a very significant day. Thenandal’s 100th film, Vijay sir’s and Rahman sir’s 25th year in the film industry. With all these milestones, such a grand event is inevitable. I’m very happy to be a part of this event. I have come here today as Vijay sir’s friend. It’s taken 25 years of hard-work to reach where he’s now. I really admire his cool composure. Silence is a very lethal weapon and I have learned the power of silence from him. He has always been an inspiration. I’m waiting for Mersal and will definitely watch it on the first-day first show itself”, said Dhanush.
Mersal marks the reunion of Vijay and director Atlee after the massive success of Theri. Kajal Agarwal, Samantha and Nithya Menen play the female leads. The movie is slated for a grand release this October, during the Diwali season.
