BJP leader tweets 'truth' about Vijay's religion, gets it from actor's fans

What do filmmakers know about economics BJP angry with GST reference in Vijay's Mersal

BJP has come under public ire after it demanded cuts in the Tamil Blockbuster "Mersal". One would think that is nobody's business, but a BJP leader thinks differently.

While individual netas have as much a right to give a bad review of a film as anybody else, in a situation where the government appoints the people who certify the films, when the political party that is in government raises a storm over a film and also the specter of tax raids, that's abuse of power. "If there are any views in the film that can create misunderstanding and they need to be removed, we are ready to do it".

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.

Chennai: Wading into the Mersal controversy, the TTV Dhinakaran camp on Sunday demanded the arrest of BJP leader H. Raja for allegedly watching the latest Tamil blockbuster online.

In the meantime, the Opposition took on the BJP for trying to "censor" the movie. "Truth is bitter", said Raja in the tweet. "It's a lie that healthcare is free in Singapore".

"Joseph Vijay's hatred for Modi is "Mersal"," he wrote, adding a communal flavour to the row. "So, what does Vijay want to stop for the building of hospitals?"

Directed by Atlee, "Mersal" stars Vijay in the roles of a village head, a doctor and a magician. In that context, there is nothing called insulting religion but only he fought for a cause, says his fans, asking BJP to make sensible comments. Both the Nadigar Sangam and the Producers' Council issued statements backing the film's freedom of expression.
