Tamil superstar Vijay’s film Mersal established him as a star in the international market, owing a bit to the numerous political controversies surrounding the film.
In the film, the actor took digs at the demonetization scheme, which had been implemented by the current government. This had stirred up a hornets’ nest, during that time.
Earlier this year, the film won the Best Foreign Language Film at the National Film Award UK 2018. Now, Vijay’s performance in Mersal has won him international recognition.
The ceremony held at Hilton Hotel, Canary Wharf in London on September 22, was not attended by Vijay.
