There are reports doing rounds in the tinsel town that the satellite rights of the Vijay starrer Mersal have been bagged by Zee Tamil for a whopping Rs. 30 crore. The project started rolling early this year without a title and it was finally announced on the eve of Vijay’s birthday last month. While the team is busy with the shooting, the pre-release business is going on actively with the producers signing some lucrative deals.

Mersal, which has Thalapathy Vijay playing the lead role, has Kajal Agarwal and Samantha sharing the screen space with him. The film is directed by Atlee, who had wielded the megaphone for Vijay’s Theri, a couple of years ago.

Bankrolled by N. Ramasamy, Hema Rukmani, R. Mahendran and H. Murali under the banner Thenandal Studio Limited, the film has a long list of actors included to the star cast such as Nithya Menen, S. J. Surya, Sathyaraj, Vadivelu, Sathyan, Misha Ghoshal, Kovai Sarala, Yogi Babu, Hareesh Peradi, Rajendran and Cheenu Mohan. It may be mentioned that SJ Suryah will be seen as the main villain in this film. AR Rahman is composing music for this magnum opus with GK Vishnu handling the camera and Ruben editing.

Mersal will also be released in Telugu under the title Adhirindhi considering the huge popularity of the lead stars in Tollywood. While the first and second look of the film that was released recently have managed to garner the attention of the film buffs in a big way, the filmmakers are working hard to get the film to the theatres on October 18 to coincide with Diwali.
