Ready to remove scenes: 'Mersal' producers call BJP's opposition justified

Ready to remove scenes: 'Mersal' producers call BJP's opposition justified

It is said that several scenes in the film talk negatively about GST and digital India.

Though opposition parties like the Congress used the BJP's stand to claim an attack on free speech and artistic expression, the film's producers have suggested they're ready to edit the scenes that mock the GST, introduced in July by the centre and defended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a key structural reform for the economy. BJP leaders in Tamil Nadu took an exception to the scenes in question and demanded to mute them. "I demand that the police take action against Raja for watching a pirated version of a new film and arrest him", Sampath said.

The scenes that the BJP objected to included one where the lead character of an honest doctor, played by Vijay, tears into the government for not providing adequate healthcare despite levying the GST. "The film producer should remove the untruths regarding GST from the film", Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan told on Friday.

However, he did not say whether the BJP leaders demanded to remove the views that they had found "objectionable" or whether the producers will employ the cuts or not.

Earlier, Chidambaram had said: "Notice to filmmakers: Law is coming, you can only make documentaries praising government's policies". For instance, BJP National Secretary H. Raja Tweeted, "Joseph Vijay's hatred for Modi is "Mersal". He was referring to 1952 Tamil movie "Parasakthi" (The Goddess), whose screenplay and dialogues were written by M Karunanidhi (yes, the former CM), and which was released during the festive Diwali season, getting big acclaim despite portrayal of Brahmins and Hindu customs in poor light.
