Mersal has been plagued with issues just ahead of its grand release. First there was the title issue, then the producers council strike and now its the censor delay. However fans can breath a sigh of relief.

The Animal Welfare Board has no objection to the film and has given its NOC. An Official announcement from the production house regarding the final censor details is awaited.

​Mersal releases this Diwali on October 18​.
