Pride of ‘Mersa;’ with superstardom of Vijay is being increased by the day for the makers as this much loved Tamil film went onto win the best Foreign language film in United Kingdoms National Award ceremony. Awards were being presented to British films with exceptional content and Mersal nabs the award in a jiffy because the jury decided to. Mersal has been winning many awards in Tamil industry as well but same was not expected in UK. Mersal was released on the Diwali weekend in 2017 and became the biggest Tamil hit of last year.
Vijay plays triple role in this film which is about as commercial and mainstream as it gets though despite of it, the honor at National Awards met with overwhelming response to the film. Mersal is the biggest hit of Vijay’s already very elaborated career but still might not have a sequel because the story only has much so much in it. Film was directed by Atlee, who has made ‘Theri’ with Vijay which also went on to achieve blockbuster success and cult following amongst the fans. Atlee is working on his next script which might star Vijay in it.
Vijay is currently shooting for his upcoming project tentatively titled ‘Thalapathy 62’ directed by AR Murugadoss which is slated to release on Diwali 2018 though an official announcement has not been regarding this. Mersal had Vijay in both urban and rural avatars while upcoming venture stills have showcased him being stylistically sound. Murugadoss is basically known for two kind of films and one of them is severely stylish thrillers that would have the feel of an elite adventure to it and this one might fall in that genre. Kaththi with Vijay had him solving the ground level issues of people but Thalapthy 62 is currently on a production hault due to strike in Tamil industry.
