Actor-composer G.V Prakash, who is busy with over half a dozen acting assignments, doesn’t miss out an opportunity to associate himself with actor Vijay’s films. Having worked with the Gilli star in films such as Thalaivaa and Theri, he has crooned a number in his next outing, Mersal, which has music by double Oscar-winning composer A.R Rahman.

It’s after 18 years that Prakash has recorded a song in his uncle’s composition. They had last worked together in Arjun’s Mudhalvan.

An excited Prakash shared the news on his Twitter page on Sunday night.

In Mersal, directed by Atlee, Vijay plays triple roles. He will be seen as a panchayat head, a doctor and a magician. The actor’s comic timing will be brought forth on screen through the magician’s role. These portions are intended to evoke laughter and lighten up the mood.

The first poster features Vijay as the panchayat head, sporting a twirled mustache, and this role is supposedly for the flashback portion. There is a jallikattu reference in this poster and it is likely that the film will mention the recent jallikattu row in Tamil Nadu. Vijay is seen as a magician in the second poster and although it wasn’t as well received as the first, fans still celebrated both.
