Modi's Government Demand This Scene To Be Removed From Vijay's 'Mersal' Movie

Mersal sets up non Rajini record with OS premiers

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi had hit out at the BJP asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to "interfere" and said that cinema was a "deep expression" of Tamil culture.

Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan had on Friday asked for a scene to be removed from the film.

For instance, a character is seen delivering a monologue in which he attacks the government's failure to provide free public welfare, despite the introduction of GST.

Murali Ramaswamy, Sri Thenandal Films head said.

The romantic action Tamil movie Mersal in which Vijay shared the screen with three handsome and talented actresses Samantha, Nithya Menon and Kajal Aggarwal received good-word-of-mouth at the box office which hikes the box office collection of the film.




Actor Kamal Hassan also threw his weight behind the film, saying, "Mersal was certified. Counter criticism with logical response". India will shine when it speaks. He said that there could be laws for making documentaries which praise the government's policies.

The producers of Mersal, however, reached out to the BJP party and even offered to delete the scenes that the party deemed offensive. "Imagine the consequences if "Parasakthi" was released today", Chidambaram tweeted.

Joining the bandwagon of celebrities, Superstar Rajinikanth on Sunday threw his weight behind Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Mersal, which is in the middle of a political storm since its theatrical release.

Actor Vishal, who is also president of the Tamil Film Producers Council now, has pointedly drawn attention to how those that are criticising the film the loudest haven't even bothered to watch it. "He further said, "Mersal" shows Vijay's ignorance in economic matters as the GST was not a new tax and the tax on liquor is over 58 per cent".
