The trailer of Vijay's Bigil was released during the weekend, and is still the number 1 video trending in India on YouTube. In less than 2 days, the trailer has garnered close to 23 million hits on the video-sharing site.

The trailer of Bigil starring Vijay (fondly known as Thalapathy) is all about women's football. The story revolves around how a gangster's son and footballer treads on his father's path before taking up the assignment of a coach of a women football team. 

The film, directed by Atlee, is described to be a “sports action thriller”. Bigil is Vijay’s third collaboration with Atlee. The first two movies were Theri and Mersal.
