Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Puli trailer was released on 20th of August at the stroke of midnight. Now, in less than 48 hours, the 1 min 53 sec video has garnered a whopping 63,527 likes and has reached the coveted 2 million mark when it comes to the total number of views.
The numbers achieved by the trailer is no mean feat and the fact that it has accomplished it in such a short period of time is mind-blowing indeed.
When compared the numbers achieved by Puli's trailer with some of the other biggies that was released in recent times, it can be said that Puli might be the ultimate winner by the time it finishes.
Baahubali's trailer has so far managed to accumulate an unbelievable 10 million views in YouTube but the video has just 29,167 likes. Vikram's much hyped I boasts of 8.5 million views and an impressive 53,604 likes which makes a good package indeed.

Will Puli Be The Ultimate Winner?
In this interesting battle between trailers, looks like Puli will end up as the ultimate winner going by the rate at which it is going right now.
Having gathered 63,527 likes in less than 2 days, it should be a matter of time before the video surpasses the record which is currently being held by Thala Ajith's Yennai Arindhaal.
Though Baahubali is far ahead with more than 10 million views, Puli's incredible beginning means that it could beat Baahubali by the time it finishes. It will be interesting to see if the trailer can reach 3 million views by the end of this week.
Vijay's Role In Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru
Meanwhile, Gautham Menon for the first time has opened up about Vijay's character in the shelved project Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru. He has revealed that a James Bond like character was designed for Ilayathalapathy Vijay.
From NRI to CIA
He has also said that the story revolves around a third generation NRI who goes on to join the CIA in order to work as a spy.
According to the Yennai Arindhaal director, if the project had materialized, Vijay would've romanced foreign heroines. Looks like Ilayathalapathy did miss out on an opportunity by saying no to Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru
