Important topic addressed... Well done !!! Congratulations team #Mersal- Rajinikanth (@superstarrajini) October 22, 2017
Diwali release "Mersal" has kicked up a row with the BJP taking exception to references on GST in the movie.
BJP leaders, including Raja, a national secretary in the party, state president Tamilisai Soundarajan and Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan, have been demanding that the "incorrect" references be deleted from the big-budget flick.
The BJP had on October 20 objected to what it termed as "untruths" regarding the GST in just-released "Mersal", and wanted dialogues on the central taxation to be deleted.
