She said, “I don't know about a sequel, but I would definitely love to work with Sriram sir again, now that I have this experience, and know the way he works. It's an incredibly fulfilling and rewarding experience for an actor, and I would love to work with him again.” 

Merry Christmas was filmed in Tamil and Hindi at the same time. Radhika Apte and Ashwini Kalsekar play important supporting roles in the movie as well. Sanjay Kapoor, Vinay Pathak, Pratima Kazmi, and Tinnu Anand are among the additional cast members in the Hindi version, whereas Radhika Sarathkumar, Gayathrie, Shanmugarajan, Kavin Jay Babu, and Rajesh are in the Tamil version.


Republic World's review of Merry Christmas

Republic reviewed Merry Christmas with 3.5 stars out of 5. It detailed how following the success of Andhaadhun, director Sriram Raghavan continued his signature style of delivering an edge-of-the-seat dark comedy-thriller with this film. The review highlights Raghavan's mastery in building the film's premise and setting the mood during the first half, with the plot gradually unfolding.

Our review further detailed that one standout aspect of Merry Christmas was the crackling chemistry between Vijay and Katrina. The review suggests that the film deserves to be watched in theatres for its risk-taking narrative and sensory pleasure. Amidst a mainstream movie landscape becoming formulaic, this movie stands out as a refreshing deviation and dances to its own tunes.
