Even as much has been said about ‘Mersal’, especially in Tamil Nadu film fraternity, but now another of the heavy weight Rajnikanth has come out openly supporting the team of this ‘controversial’ movie.
He said that the movie addresses an “important topic”. Vijay starrer Mersal ran into disputes after Tamil Nadu unit of the BJP demanded removal of specific dialogues which take a dig at the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and digital India.
“Important topic addressed… Well done!!! Congratulations team ‘Mersal’,” Rajinikanth tweeted late Sunday.
It need be mentioned that Rajnikanth coming out to support the film is crucial is that he is said to be close to many top BJP politicians.
Other political heavy weights like Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and DMK leader M.K. Stalin, apart from actor Kamal Haasan have slammed the BJP’s attempt to muzzle criticism regarding its policies. Earlier this week, BJP National Secretary H. Raja even raked up actor Vijay’s Christian origins.>
