The producers council and Tamilnadu State government have reached an understanding. The government has agreed to reduce the local entertainment tax from 10% to 8%. Vishal met the chief minister and spoke to him about the issue were the resolution was taken. However the entertainment tax for other language movies is 20% .

Ticket prices now will be calculated as below

Multiplex : Rs. 150 + 28% GST – 42+ 8% ET – 12 = Rs. 204

Non-Plex AC : 100 + 28 + 8 = Rs. 136

Non-AC : 80 + 14.40 + 6.40 = 100.80

This clears the decks for Vijay’s Mersal.
