Vijay Wins International Award

Thalapathy Vijay’s Mersal which hit theatres for Diwali 2017 was a box-office rage and became a phenomenal success. It was directed by Atlee and produced by Thenandal Films.


Actor Vijay was one among the nominations for the Best Actor award for this movie in the IARA (International Achievement Recognition Award). The actor’s fans begun to relish this exciting news when the nomination list was announced a couple of months ago.


And now, the results of the IARA Awards 2018 are out. None other than our beloved Joseph Vijay bags the Best International Actor award for Mersal. It is indeed a proud moment for the entire Kollywood, and Thalapathy fans are already celebrating.

halapathy Vijay's film Mersal established him as a star in the international market, partly owing to the numerous political controversies surrounding the film.
In the film, the actor took digs at the demonetisation scheme, which had been implemented by the current government. This had stirred up a hornets nest, at the time.
Earlier this year, the film won the Best Foreign Language Film at the National Film Award UK 2018. Now, Vijay's performance in Mersal has won him international recognition.
He has been felicitated by International Achievement Recognitions Awards (IARA) 2018.The London-based company has honoured Vijay with the Best International Actor award for 2018.
The ceremony took place on September 22 at Hilton Hotel, Canary Wharf in London. However, actor Vijay gave the event a miss.
A few months ago, IARA team took to social media asking people to vote for the favourite actor and for technicians in other categories. It is said that the awards were given to the stars, based solely on audience's voting.
Mersal, directed by Atlee, starred Vijay, SJ Suryah, Samantha, Nithya Menen and Kajal Aggarwal.
