Two years after Mersal’s release, the film continues to break all kinds of records. Vijay’s fans are celebrating because ‘Aalaporaan Thamizhan’ is now the first song from a Vijay-starrer to cross 100 million views on YouTube. The Mersal album features four songs composed by AR Rahman in his trademark style. Out of them, ‘Alaporaan Thamizhan’, a song composed keeping in mind Vijay’s star power, has become hugely popular. The flute, guitar, thavil and nadaswaram come together beautifully and blend with the rich visuals featuring Nithya Menen and Vijay.
