Yes, you read it right. Vijay’s much awaited Deepavali release Mersal will hit a whopping number of 3292 screens. This has been confirmed by its makers.
“#MersalWorldwideOn18Oct #MersalScreenCount 3292. Will add more #MersalDiwali #7DaysToGo @Atlee_dir @MuraliRamasamy4 @ThenandalFilms”, Hema Rukmani, CEO of Thenandal Entertainment tweeted.
It is learnt that 3292 screens are for the combined version of both Mersal and Adhirindhi (Telugu dub). The film will have a record screen count in all the territories including Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
Meanwhile, Malaysian DJ MasterMind has remixed the popular track ‘Aalaporan Thamizhan’, composed by music maestro AR Rahman, for Mersal.
The original song has been sung by Kailash Kher, Sathya Prakash, Deepak and Pooja AV. As a DJ, MasterMind has established his standing by playing a key role in the hip-hop music scene in Kuala Lumpur.
The Madras High Court on Friday last vacated the order of interim injunction granted by it on September 22 restraining Thenandal Studios from using the title, Mersal , for actor Vijay’s upcoming movie.
The court order came after the producer named A Rajendran had approached the court citing that he registered the title Merrasalaitan in the film chamber in 2014 and the shooting of the movie is in progress.
