Mersal Controversy: Head of the Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) and general secretary of the South Indian Artistes’ Association (SIAA), Vishal has vehemently criticised BJP leader H Raja for watching a pirated version of the newly released Vijay starrer, ‘Mersal’ and demanded an apology from him.
BJP leader H Raja has been in the lead of the protest against Vijay’s new film, which has imitated pet projects of the Central Government. He also covered a communal angle to the whole controversy by raking up Vijay’s religion.
He said in one news channel that he saw the latest film ‘Mersal’ on the internet. In a statement, Vishal said it was “totally insensitive” of H Raja to watch the film using illegal means setting a wrong example.
“Dear Mr H Raja, as a leader and prominent personality, you are advocating piracy and blatantly agree to it? ”
He also added,
“Dear sir, I as a sincere citizen, true workaholic and a man who thinks twice to do anything wrong, seriously, I wonder how a political leader like you can watch a pirated version of a film which sets a bad example. Totally insensitive and uncalled for,”

BJP leaders, including H Raja, a national secretary of the party, state president Tamilisai Soundarajan and Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan, have been obliging that the “incorrect references” should be deleted from the Movie.
However, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, P Chidambaram, DMK working president MK Stalin, veteran actor Kamal Haasan and a host of Tamil cinema industry spokespeople had defended the film crew on the issue.
Chief Minister of Puducherry V Narayanasamy came to the support of the film, saying problems have been “justifiably” put on the GST and the Digital India actions in the movie and there could be no objection to an expression of one’s views in a democratic setup. He said and questioned as
“I am a member of the GST council and I have expressed my strong criticism of the abnormal levy of GST on medicines and on hotels at the council meeting,”
“Will those unable to tolerate criticism made by actor Vijay in the movie against the GST seek action against me as well for objecting to the abnormal levy of taxes at the council meeting?”
After much confusion, CEO of Thenandal Entertainment, Director at Thenandal studios limited clarified that they’re willing to remove scenes/dialogues if need be.
