The shooting of Vijay’s Mersal is going on rapidly and the team recently released a song from the album Alaporaan Thamizhan. While fans are waiting for the film’s release, we have some interesting information about its storyline. Apparently, it is a film about two identical twins getting separated at birth and what eventually happens to them. Vijay will be playing three different roles in the movie and he will be seen as the father and the identical twins. Also, we hear that the Thalapathy will be seen as a magician in one of the roles. 

The film has been shot in various places including Chennai, Rajasthan and Andhra apart from some foreign locations where the songs would be canned.
