Yogi Babu, the crowd favorite comedian has started shooting for ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay’s Mersal. Sources say that the comedian's name in Mersal is Nola and he comes in sequences involving Vijay and Samantha.
In Mersal, Vijay is playing triple roles and he also has three heroines—Nithya Menon, Samantha and Kamal Aggarwal. Already, ace comedian Vadivelu has completed his portions with Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal while Sathyan of Nanban and Thuppakki fame also plays an important role, which means Atlee is using three comedians for the triple roles of Vijay.
Atlee has completed nearly 80% of the shoot and by August, he will be wrapping up the film. Sri Thenandal Films is producing Mersal, which is slated for a grand Diwali release.
