Atlee: ‘Mersal’ will be like a T20 cricket match
In a recent interaction, director Atlee said that his previous film ‘Theri’ was made to hit 300 runs in a fifty over cricket match while his upcoming film ‘Mersal’ will be like hitting 300 runs in T20 cricket. Atlee also revealed that the portions involving Vijay as a village youngster will have a lot of mass sequences and fans will see a new Thalapathy.
On inspirations and copy, the Raja Rani director said “There are only seven ragas in music so any song composed after 100 years will have the influence of Ilaiyaraaja sir and AR Rahman sir. Similarly, it’s easy to say that a film’s story is similar to some other film but the effort we put in is huge.
If the filmmaking process is that easy, anyone can become successful but in reality, things are difficult”. Atlee promised that everyone will come to the edge of the seat for a particular scene in Mersal and he would talk about it after the release.
