It is to be noted that Vijay commands a huge fan following in Kerala and his films get a very good opening.
According to sources, Global United Media is known for their wide release strategy and since Vijay enjoys a solid market in Kerala, it would be a record release in the state.
The name of one of the three characters played by Vijay in his upcoming film Mersal, directed by Atlee, is Maaran.
With the leaked pics, it’s understood that Maaran is a caring doctor, who helps the needy and thus they call him ‘Maruthuvar Thilagam’.
