He also added that he felt so happy to see an Indian film like Mersal dominating the international markets.
Taran Adarsh was quoted as saying:
"I was so keen to watch Mersal. Unfortunately, I was travelling at that point of time and I didn't get the time to watch the film with subtitles. But I have heard so much about the film. I was completely stunned while posting the international data of Mersal. Everytime I look for Box Office data of Hindi films at overseas, Mersal would be on the top of it. I felt so happy and proud that an Indian film is shining and shining so brightly in the international markets. Even in places like Australia, I'm surprised with the kind of business Mersal has done. The footfalls in France, UK, Malaysia and US were phenomenal."
Mersal starred Thalapathy Vijay in triple roles.
