In a recent media interaction, director Atlee revealed that the fifty minutes portion of bearded Vijay character in Mersal will be the major highlight. Atlee said that the film will have more than one Vijay but audience should watch the film to know whether the actor play double or triple roles.
"The character name of the bearded Vijay sir name in the film is Thalapathy, it's not a trick to impress him but the character demands such a powerful name", said Atlee.
Social media reports say that for commercial reasons, the makers of Mersal have changed the lyrics of Aalaporan Tamizhan to glorify Telugu language in Adhirindhi (Telugu dubbed version of Mersal). But Atlee says "No, Aalaporan Tamizhan was written as a Tamil anthem so we are not tweaking the lyrics to glorify Telugu language. In Adhirindhi, the lyrics would be a celebration of a new born baby", said Atlee.
