Vijay’s Mersal single is all set to become a Tamil anthem

Expectations are building up around Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s next. This audio teaser just adds to it.

It’s like Deepavali has come early for Vijay fans. The audio teaser for Aalaporaan Tamizhan, the first single from Vijay’s next film, Mersal, was released on Thursday, August 10. And it notched up over 13 lakh views in a matter of hours.

The song, whose title means the Tamilian is going to rule, is a celebration of Tamil identity and talks about the achievements of Tamilans in various fields and across the globe.

Music for Mersal, the Atlee directorial, is by AR Rahman. The peppy beat as well as the theme are bound to make Aalaporan Thamizhan a hit single in the weeks to come.

In the film, Vijay plays three roles, a first in his career. Initial reports says that one role is that of a panchayat leader in a retro segment. Looks like Aalapolaran Thamizhan features Vijay in this role.

Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen play the female leads in the film. While Vijay’s last release Bairavaa was a Pongal release this year, Mersal looks all set to put the fireworks into this Deepavali.
