Sri Thenandal Films have confirmed they are not deleting any scenes or dialogues however if it hurts a particular group, they are willing to come to a compromise. While the Mersel issue initially started as a anti-GST issue it quickly took a dark turn and turned communal when BJP national spokesperson H Raja said that Joseph Vijay’s anti Modi statement is Mersel, bringing to notice his religious leanings.
He also shared Vijay’s Voter ID and letter pad on Twitter to prove his religious identity. However Vijay fans do not care for such inciting statements and have shown their love and support by changing their names to Joseph Vijay and using the twitter hash tags #Welovejosephvijay and #josephvijay.
