Vijay’s Mersel has been confirmed as a Diwali release and the film will hit screens on October 18. Two dialogue promos were released over the weekend. Vijay frenzy seems to have been further heightened with the mass dialogues in the film.

The film has been certified with a U/A with a run time of 167 minutes which is just short of three hours. The film stars Samantha, Nithya Menon and Kajal Aggarwal while Vijay plays a triple role for the first time.

The film is releasing amidst high expectations with many predicting a box office bonanza. The only hurdle now is the producers council strike which has been ongoing since October 6. Fans are hoping they will reach a consensus before Diwali.
