BJP vs Mersal: Rajinikanth appreciates Vijay film for addressing important topic

Vijay plays a triple role in Mersal Vijay plays a triple role in Mersal

Parasakthi, the debut film of Tamil film icon Sivaji Ganesan had released in 1952 and Chidambaram's reference to it vis-à-vis the controversy over Mersal is perhaps because the movie's dialogues, written by DMK chief M Karunanidhi who was then a budding leader in the party and a screen writer, espoused reformist and egalitarian ideals.

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. Reportedly, the BJP began a campaign against the movie in Tamil Nadu alleging that it "conveyed wrong impression about GST and Digital India".

Looks like BJP members' demand to remove the GST dialogue from Thalapathy Vijay's Mersal is set to go in vain as none other than legendary Indian actor Rajinikanth came forward to support the film. He said that even before the movie's release it had courted controversies which were "set right" and added, "it is anguishing that the film has courted several controversies within a few days of its release".

Veteran Actor Kamal Hassan responded over this issue and said. 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. Don't re-censor it. Counter criticism with logical response.
