HUGE! International Awards Nominations For Mersal And Vijay
By Vivek Raj [ January 16, 2018 ]
Mersal released last year not only became a blockbuster at the box office, but was also one of the most exciting films that had come out in recent times.
Directed by Atlee under the Thenandal Studios Limited banner with music by A. R. Rahman, Mersal had a power-packed star cast in the form of Vijay in triple roles, Nithya Menen, Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha Akkineni as the female leads, SJ Suryah as the antagonist and Sathyaraj, Vadivelu, Kovai Sarala and Sathyan in vital supporting roles.
With the film scoring high at the box office, Mersal has now secured a nomination for the Best Foreign Language Film Award at the National Film Awards UK.
'Thalapathy' Vijay too has earned a nomination in the Best Supporting Actor Award category where he will face competition against reputed and popular names from Hollywood and England.

It must be noted that all categories are subject to voting where fans can register their votes for their favorite stars and films.
The makers will no doubt feel elated with the response and this nomination now after the controversy the film got entangled in post its release last year.
A sweet success and a super start to 2018 to both team Mersal and Vijay!
