Thalapathy Vijay's recent release 'Mersal' has sparked a major political controversy in Tamil Nadu and India, but movie continues to rock the box office worldwide. Unconfirmed reports says that the production house Thenandal Films has decided to cut out scenes from 'Mersal' movie after Tamil Nadu unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party took exception to some dialogues critical of the Goods and Services Act (GST).

This all started when Tamil Nadu BJP President Tamilisai Sounderarajan slammed 'Mersal' film makers for reference to GST and demonetisation. Soon after Tamilisai, other state BJP leaders making it a full-blown political controversy. “The film producer should remove the untruths regarding GST from the film,” Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan told on Friday.

The controversy was also given a communal spin by senior BJP leader H Raja, who has cited Vijay’s Christian origin for criticising the Modi government in his film.
Actor Kamal Haasan, who suffered these kind of political vendetta before has supported 'Mersal' team. In his recent statement he said "Mersal was certified. Don’t re-censor it. Counter criticism with logical response. Dont silence critics. India will shine when it speaks,”
In addition to that General Secretary of Nadigar Sangam and the president of Tamil Film Producers’ Council, Vishal, also issued a statement in support of Mersal. He thanked Vijay and the makers of Mersal for addressing social issues in their film.
