Tamil superstar Vijay’s upcoming film Bigil is gearing up for release during the Diwali holiday season. The post-production was wrapped up already.

The latest we hear is that the makers have decided to take a huge risk regarding the runtime of the sports drama.

Reportedly, Bigil will have a run-time of 179 minutes, which is a marginally high length for a commercial film. Very few commercial films with runtime close to three hours have tasted success in the recent times.

However, the makers are said to be extremely confident about the content of the film and that is the reason why they have decided to go ahead with the lengthy final cut.

Vijay is playing three characters in this film, which is apparently based on women football team. Atlee, who previously delivered super hits like Theri and Mersal with Vijay is at the helm for this film. Bigil was reportedly made on a budget of Rs 180 crores.
