The 'Aalaporaan Tamizhan' audio teaser is the perfect glimpse of what seems like another foot-tapping and high-octane song that is a must in every Vijay movie.

The 30-second version of the latest track from Vijay's Mersal has the actor sporting a new bearded look (like in the film's posters) while the music by AR Rahman seems to be full of colour, energy and celebration. The lyrics from the teaser are all praise for the 'Thamizhan' played by Vijay and the song poster depicts its pumped-up vibe.

The full song will be out at 5 pm on Thursday, 10 August, and Thalapathy fans have already expressed their excitement over its release. This can be seen in Mersal dominating the trends — be it on Google or social media — over the past 24 hours.

What fans are undoubtedly looking forward (most) to are Vijay's signature steps and moves to this upbeat song.

Mersal, directed by Atlee, marks the second time the actor-filmmaker duo are coming together after their 2016 action thriller Theri. Vijay will be seen in a triple role in the film, with Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen as the female leads. The action drama is pitted to be the superstar's most expensive film made so far.

Mersal had first garnered hype when the director revealed the first look of the film on Vijay's birthday. The movie is set to hit screens on 18 October 2017 and will be the actor's 61st — another one of his grand Diwali releases.

Will the Mersal (meaning 'stunned') soundtrack give us another set of Vijay songs to groove to? We'll have to wait and watch.
