Bigil was Thalapathy Vijay’s last release and it was a huge hit at the box office. The film reportedly collected around 300 crores at the worldwide box office and became one of the biggest hits in Vijay’s career. Produced by AGS Entertainment and directed by Atlee, Bigil had music scored by A.R.Rahman who delivered a crowd-pulling album. While ‘Singappenney’ turned out to be a huge hit among the masses and the women folk, ‘Verithanam’ attracted Vijay fans and it was nothing short of grand celebration in the theatres.

Bigil featured Vijay in dual roles, as a father and son. Rayappan, as an aging don became the darling of the masses and turned out to be an impressive character for the fans. Vijay’s makeover, which was inspired by Sushant Singh Rajput’s look in Chhichhore, looked interesting and his voice modulation was also noteworthy. Bigil featured Lady Superstar Nayanthara as the female lead and veteran actor Jackie Shroff as the antagonist. Kathir, Vivekh, Yogi Babu, Indhuja, Amritha Aiyer, Reba Monica John, Varsha Bollamma, Indraja Shankar formed the supporting cast. The film had cinematography by G.K.Vishnu, editing by Ruben and art direction by Muthuraj.
