The trailer of actor Vijay’s much awaited film Bigil was released on Saturday. Directed by Atlee, the sports drama has Vijay playing two roles – one of a young man who coaches a women’s football team, and another one being a local don. The film’s trailer also uses several shots of the girls undergoing training for the game, apart from showing anger for their coach’s strict ways.
It is clear from the trailer of Bigil that the film is going to be a treat for all Vijay fans. Vijay shines in both roles, a young football coach and an old man with a rustic background. The makers had earlier revealed that the film is set against the backdrop of a women’s football team. Nayanthara, the female lead, comes only for a bit in the trailer as the focus is mostly on the women footballers and Vijay. The way he says “Bigil” and “Verithanam” are sure to be a hit among all his fans. With plenty of action scenes, football moves and heavy-duty dialogues, that bring out the best of Vijay’s onscreen persona, audience and fans are bound to have high expectations from the film.
Besides Vijay, Bigil also stars Nayanthara, Vivek, Kathir, Jackie Shroff, Daniel Balaji, Anandaraj, Devadarshini and Yogi Babu. The music of the film has been composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman.
Atlee released the trailer on Twitter. He wrote along, “Bigil Trailer Happy Deepavali Nanba 💥💥💥”

Bigil surely reminds many of Shah Rukh Khan’s Bollywood hit film Chak De India, so much so that even SRK pointed that out and reacted to the film’s trailer calling it “Chak De on steroids”. He wishes the team of Bigil and tweeted, “Wish my friends @Atlee_dir & #ThalapathyVijay & @arrahman all the best for this one. Like a Chake De On steroids!!”
