Vijay plays a triple role in his upcoming Diwali release Mersel. One of the roles is that of a magician. Apparently Vijay performs 16 different magical acts in the film and he has done them all himself.

He learnt the tricks and performed then on camera without any special effects or camera tricks. Apparently these tricks take time and effort to master but Vijay learnt the art in quick few months.

This is the first time that Vijay plays a triple role and that of a magician. Early reports say that fans will be thrilled by his magician act and its one of the best parts of the movie.
