Thalapathy Vijay's special gift on birthday, poster of actor's next film 'Bigil' revealed


Actor Vijay turned 45 on Saturday and fans are too excited for the day. As part of his birthday celebration, the second look of 'Bigil' was released at midnight for his fans.

Director Atlee released the look on Twitter calling it his 'birthday gift to Vijay anna.'

Going by the poster, the film features Vijay in dual roles and it seems to be that of father and son. While the older Vijay is seen sporting speckles of grey in his hair, the younger one is seen behind him tossing a Manchester United football casually.

Bigil meaning 'whistle' is the third collaboration of the director Atlee with Vijay after their earlier blockbusters, Theri and Mersal. Nayanthara plays the female lead in the film and Jackie Shroff is the antagonist.

AR Rahman is composing music for the film, which is set to release on Diwali. The movie had hit the floors in January and has been majorly shot in a specially-erected football stadium set at the EVP Studios in Chennai.

Meanwhile, several theatres across Tamil Nadu have taken to screening the actor’s earlier films such as Mersal, Theri, and Sarkar during his birthday week, with some shows exclusively for women and children.
