GST Dialogues censored in Mersal Telugu version: Adhirindhi
After the Tamil producer of Mersal movie denied to remove the GST dialogues from the film, BJP state leaders threatened to stop the film in theatres. With support pouring in from superstars like Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan, Mersal film continued to mint cash at the box office. ‘The film actually garnered more hype and attention because of BJP leaders than the film promotions. This helped to elevate the film and its collections,’ expressed a trade analyst.
It looked like similar controversy would arise with the Telugu version of the film, Adhirindhi. But it is learned that the producerSarathkmaraar gave a green signal for the ‘GST dialogues’ to be removed from the film after the Censor Board declined to give the certificate for the film.
The Telugu version of the movie has already missed its initial dates, and more delay would only impact the business of the film. Maybe the producer too realized the same, and his compromise might be worthy.
Mersal in Tamil has shattered the records of Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kabali, and the film is heading into the 200-crore club. The Vijay starrer, Mersal earned 170 crores in its first week.
