Vijay’s latest film Mersal has run into some controversy over the past few days post its release on October 18.
A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed by an advocate named Ashvathaman in the Chennai High Court stating the messages in the film regarding the government taxation and healthcare were misleading. In his PIL, he requested the censor certificate to be revoked so as to enable the said scenes and dialogues be removed.
In response, the Chennai High Court dismissed the case citing its credibility stating why the petitioner did not raise questions on films that featured smoking and drinking scenes, and those portraying the disabled in a disrespectful manner.
In conclusion, the Chennai High Court added that the censor revocation is not possible considering the scenes and dialogues in Mersal are not offensive in any manner.
A major victory for team Mersal, Vijay and his countless fans!
