The controversy over Mersal film continues with CPM jumping in. The CPM is staging a protest against the BJP over the row in Chennai. Meanwhile Tamil superstar Rajnikanth has lauded the south superstar Vijay-Starrer action flick ‘Mersal’. Rajinikanth in a tweet congratulated the team and said that an important team has been addressed…this comes after the film kicked up a row with the bjp taking exception to references on GST and demonstration in the movie and demanded the 3 scenes to be removed. Congress, AIADMK and DMK too jumped into the fray. However, the entire film fraternity including Kamal Haasan came out in support of the filmmakers and crew..but the makers cowed down and agreed to remove the controversial scenes.
