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

Meanwhile, the entire Tamil industry has stood behind the makers and Vijay and criticised the state unit of BJP for raking up the controversy.

"The BJP is acting as a super film certification board and curbing democratic rights", DMK spokesperson A Saravanan said.

"BJP leaders Tamilisai and H. Raja have been providing free publicity to Mersal film for the past couple of days. I demand that the police take action against Raja for watching a pirated version of a new film and arrest him", Sampath said.

While the producers of the film have offered to delete the scene that has also gone viral on the Internet because of the 'factual inaccuracies' pointed by Tamil Nadu BJP, the reactions have led to a great surge in the demand for tickets. Mersal was certified. Don't re-censor it.

"The film producer should remove the untruths regarding the GST from the film", PTI quoted Radhakrishnan as having said.

Mersal's fans pointedly ignored the BJP and turned up in big numbers to watch the movie that released on Friday. "Dont silence critics. India will shine when it speaks", he tweeted.

Summary: "None had demanded a ban on films criticising the policies of the governments. Imagine the consequences if "Parasakthi" was released today".
