Police complaint against 'Mersal' hero Vijay lodged in Madurai

Police complaint against 'Mersal' hero Vijay lodged in Madurai

The BJP is not the only one complaining about Mersal.

Vijay's father SA Chandrasekhar threw his weight behind his son, saying many BJP leaders have termed GST and demonetization as failures. It is not a film that expresses opinions against the government either.

In the pitched faceoff between the Vijay starrer Mersal and the BJP leadership of Tamil Nadu, it's very cool how the state film industry has spoken up for their peers loud, united and bold.

In the movie climax, popular actor Vijay asks a question that when the Singapore government which is getting 7% GST can provide free medical services to its citizens, why India which collected four times as much at 28% cannot do so.

He also said it was saddening that the BJP leaders are against the film, which has sent out a social message by reflecting the "true sentiments" of the people on GST. In response, the producer Murali Ramaswamy said that misunderstanding needs to be removed. To oppose the decision of BJP leaders many celebrities and ministers gave their statement against the controversy.

Raja, who raked up the actor's Christian origin by his tweet "Joseph Vijay's hatred for Modi is "Mersal" on October 21, continued that on Monday. Raja wrote, "Truth is bitter".

In the meantime, the Opposition took on the BJP for trying to "censor" the movie. "So, what does Vijay want to stop for the building of hospitals?" 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.

Mersal, directed by Atlee, also features Samantha, Nithya Menon and Kajal Aggarwal. Both the Nadigar Sangam and the Producers' Council issued statements backing the film's freedom of expression.
