After Theri and Mersal, the deadly duo - Vijay and Atlee - are back with Bigil in Tamil cinema. While the movie is all set to hit the screens during Diwali, fans have been eagerly waiting for the trailer of the film since October 2.

On September 20, during the audio launch of Bigil, director Atlee had said that the trailer of the film would be out in the first week of October. Rumours suggested that October 2 (Gandhi Jayanti) will be the likely date. However, fans have been disappointed since.

In an interview to a Tamil magazine, producer Archana Kalpathi explained the reason behind the delay. The completion of the film rests with the directorial team and only when they are ready, can the producer give an update, she said.

When it comes to Vijay's films, the curiosity of fans is infinite. While Archana understands this, she insisted that it isn't right to pressurise the team.

The latest update is that Bigil's trailer will be out on October 12 at 6pm. Archana took to Twitter on Monday (October 7) to announce this update. And it isn't surprising to note that #BigilTrailer has been trending since.


Mersal - the previous film of Vijay with Atlee as the director - ruffled a few feathers in the political corridors of Tamil Nadu. Will Bigil, made with a budget of Rs 180 crore, create a sensation of sorts? Atlee said that Bigil will make it a hattrick for the Atlee-Vijay combine.

Fans are hoping that the trailer of this sports drama focused on women's football, starring Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Vivek and more, will be released by Vijay and Atlee. Fans are all set to hoot and whistle just as what the title of the film suggests - Bigil.
