Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s Bigil FDFS show opens up to massive fanfare
After the massive blockbuster success of ‘Sarkar’ for Diwali last year Ilayathalapathy Vijay's next film, Bigil, hit the screens today with early morning shows starting at 4 am. Fans of the actor thronged to theatres to celebrate the film’s release by bursting crackers, multiple paal abhishegam for cut-outs, and of course, dancing to his songs. A surprise for this year was a life-size statue of Vijay unveiled by fan club members at Albert theatre in Egmore.
Touted to be a sports drama, the protagonist (Vijay) is speculated to play a dual role in the film—that of a father Rayappan and a son Michael.
Another aspect covered in the film is said to be that of a football player and coach of Women’s Football Team from Tamil Nadu. Atlee who previously worked with Vijay in two blockbuster hits like Theri and Mersal has directed the production.
The film also has a stellar star cast including Nayanthara as the female lead along with Kathir, Jackie Shroff, Yogi Babu, Daniel Balaji, Indhuja, Vivek, Anandharaj and many others.
The film is produced by AGS Entertainment and it¹s safe to say that its a hattrick from the duo who have previously hit jackpot with Diwali release.
