Theatrical exhibitors around a universe are pulling out a stops to see that Mersal hits it big, with a worldwide opening shade count of 3,300, a many ever for a Vijay film. In further to a actor’s home state of Tamil Nadu, design large rollouts also in a normal Tamil film strongholds of Andra Pradesh, Telugana, Karnataka and Kerala, and abroad in a US, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.

Box Office India reports that Malaysia alone will put adult 800 screens for Mersal, a jaw-dropping count if correct, as it would paint scarcely 8 out of 10 of a country’s 1,100 sum auditoriums. Vijay will be aiming to set a new personal best there by commanding a $1.83 million (Rs. 12 crore) that his action-spy-thriller Kaththi warranted in Malaysia in 2014.

That would put him in singular association among Kollywood’s stars, as only three such actors, Rajinikanth, Kamal Hassan, and Vikram, have seen their cinema strech that threshhold.

Mersal re-teams Vijay with Atlee Kumar, Vijay’s helmer on a action-drama Theri.
