Mersal is riding on very high expectations. Apart from being a Vijay film, it has been made on a whopping budget of Rs 130 crores.

The last Vijay film which had such a huge budget was Puli, which was made at nearly 100 crores but didn't do well at the box-office. 

Directed by Atlee, who has reunited with Vijay after last year’s blockbuster Theri, Mersal is gearing up for release this Deepavali. The audio launch is scheduled to take place in Chennai’s Nehru Stadium on Sunday and it will feature a live performance by A.R Rahman, who has composed the music for the film.

Apparently, the event will be conducted on a scale Tamil cinema hasn’t witnessed so far. Work has been underway at the stadium since the beginning of this week.

Kamal Haasan and superstar Rajinikanth are expected to grace the occasion as special guests. However, the makers are yet to officially confirm their participation in the event. The film features Vijay in a triple role for the first time in his career. He will be seen as a panchayat head, a doctor, and a magician. He is paired with Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen in the film, which also stars SJ Suryah as the antagonist.

Produced by Sri Thenandal Studios, the film will have a simultaneous dubbed release in Telugu.
