Vijay’s Mersel may not release in Kerela. The film distributors association (FDA) has claimed that losses from Vijay’s Bhairava are yet to compensated. Without the compensation they will not allow Vijay’s upcoming release Mersel to release.

Global United Media which has acquired the rights in Kerela is currently sorting out the issues and has requested the FDA to withdraw its objection.

Mersel will release in 250+ theatres in Kerela and this new issue dampens the hope of Vijay fans in Kerala. Mersel is scheduled to release on October 18.
