'Thalapathy' Vijay's fans are an ecstatic lot after the superstar's Master, which came out last month as a grand Pongal treat, has turned out to be a box office blockbuster. With Master currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video, Vijay's fans were given a sweet surprise on Friday when reputed South Indian photographer G. Venkat Ram shared for the first time the behind-the-scenes making video of the Bigil first look poster, which includes director Atlee and Vijay. The Bigil first look at the time of its release went so far as to trend worldwide for a few hours after it dropped on social media, with fans from around the world immediately diving and decoding the hidden details and various aspects included in the poster. 

Released worldwide for Diwali in 2018, Bigil directed by Atlee marked the director's third collaboration with Vijay after their previous sensational box office successes, Theri and Mersal. Produced at a massive budget of 180 crores by AGS Entertainment, Bigil turned out to be the duo's highest-grossing film and also broke several records previously held by Vijay. Appearing in dual roles, Vijay as the father character Rayappan and son Michael aka. Bigil, the superstar's performance was celebrated by fans, with the film going on to surpass 250 crores in collections. The success of Bigil and the admiration for Vijay's portrayal of the Rayappan character has since led to many actively requesting for a prequel. 

Bigil, which also included the chart-busters 'Verithanam' and 'Singappenney' tracks, made it yet another successful outing for the A. R. Rahman-Vijay combo in line with their previous films, Azhagiya Tamil Magan, Mersal and Sarkar. Vijay had been paired opposite Nayanthara, who was yet another major USP for the film, considering it was their reunion after almost a decade when they starred together in Villu in 2009. Post the success of Bigil, there were a few speculations that Vijay and Atlee could possibly return yet another time for a new venture, but no official confirmation has come out in that regard. Revolving around the sport of football, Bigil included a large supporting cast among whom were Yogi Babu, Anandaraj, Kathir, Vivek,  Indhuja, Daniel Balaji, Vivek, Varsha Bollamma, Amritha Iyer, Soundararaja, Gayathri Reddy, Devadarshini, Dheena, including Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff and former Indian football star IM Vijayan in negative roles.
