Gearing up for a grand Diwali release, the makers of Mersal have now released two promos from the upcoming Vijay-starrer directed by Atlee.

The promos were released along with the Baahubali 2: The Conclusion's TV premiere on Sunday night. Thus, Mersal; starring Vijay, SJ Suryah, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen; has once again getting the trend mills buzzing.

While the teaser gave us a glimpse of his three roles in the film - a panchayat head, magician and doctor, the promos give us a closer look at two of the female leads of the film - Samantha, Kajal and also introduce us to one of his roles, pitted as a panchayat head.

Mersal teaser: Vijay packs a punch in this small glimpse of his upcoming drama

The first 30-second promo, with 'Macho' as the BGM, shows us in a giffy about Samantha and Kajal's edgy and chirpy roles, Kovai Sarala's comic timing and the female lead's chemistry with Vijay. But this one has got no traces of Nithya Menen who is paired opposite Vijay in the rural setting of the film.

However, this half a minute promo gives us a glimpse of Vadivelu. The cult comedian is set to enthrall the audience along with Vijay after a long gap.

The second promo is one for the fireworks. Vijay kills it in just 30 seconds of his appearance, as a mass Tamizhan from the rural parts of Tamil Nadu (a rustic jallikattu setup) and trademark Ilaythalapathy punch lines, which sure will leave fans hooting.

Mersal's tracks like 'Azhapooran Tamizhan' have already become quite the cult and the film written by KV Vijayendra Prasad is estimated to be the star's costliest movie made till date. Also, expectations are on an all time high as Vijay will be seen in a triple role and collaborate with AR Rahman after 10 years.

Mersal is slated to release this Diwali on 18 October.
