Mersal Vs Modi hashtag created a lot of buzz on the social media. And the supporters of the Vijay attacked and criticised BJP over the scenes they are demanding to cut down. Along with fans and supporters, many celebrities and ministers have come with their opposition against BJP over Mersal scenes. The Tamil famous actor Kamal Haasan said Mersal was certified so please do not re-censor it. He urged for counter criticism with a logical response. The Mersal movie was released on Friday and became one of the blockbuster movie of the year.
In this controversy over the Tamil movie Mersal, the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi also waded into with his criticising comments over BJP and PM Modi. He tweeted that Mr Modi Tamil Cinema is a deep expression of Tamil culture and Language. So please don’t try to demonetise Tamil pride by interfering into the Mersal movie.
The Tamil BJP was the first to oppose the scene in which actor Vijay takes a dig at the government Goods and Services new tax regime and the decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes last year. As per the several media reports, the BJP party has demanded to the producers of the Vijay-starrer Mersal to remove the scenes that were insulting the PM Modi and the centre policies.
Mr. Modi, Cinema is a deep expression of Tamil culture and language. Don't try to demon-etise Tamil pride by interfering in Mersal
