Vijay's Mersal may emerge as biggest Tamil release

New Delhi: The rise of regional cinema is helping the growth of Indian film industry in an unprecedented way. This year hasn't been all that great for Bollywood. But regional movies have done a wonderful job so far. Adding to the same is Tamil superstar Vijay's film Mersal.

You will be amazed to know that the Atlee directorial is now turning out to be the biggest Tamil release ever. It is being said that the worldwide screen count of the movie is now touching the 3292 mark. Hema Rukmani, director of Sri Thenandal Studios, on Tuesday took to Twitter to confirm the same.

"#MersalWorldwideOn18Oct #MersalScreenCount 3292. Will add more #MersalDiwali," she posted on the microblogging website.

According to media reports, the flick will leave behind Prabhas' Baahubali 2: The Conclusion in terms of screen count in Kerala. Amazing, isn’t it?

The film marks the collaboration of Atlee and Vijay for the second time after last year's Tamil blockbuster Theri. Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen play the leading ladies in the upcoming film.

SJ Suryah will be seen the antagonist in the film, which has music by AR Rahman.

Mersal, made on a lavish budget of over Rs 120 crore, is slated to hit the silver screens on October 18 this year.
