Looks like BJP members' demand to remove the GST dialogue from Thalapathy Vijay's Mersal is set to go in vain as none other than legendary Indian actor Rajinikanth came forward to support the film.
Earlier, veteran Tamil actors like Kamal Haasan, Sarath Kumar and Arvind Swami too backed the film for its important dialogue on GST.
On Sunday night, Rajinikanth took to his official Twitter account to express his support for Mersal. He also congratulated Mersal team to address the important topic through their film.
"Important topic addressed... Well done !!! Congratulations team #Mersal"
Meanwhile, the makers of Mersal have decided not to delete the controversial dialogue from the film. The film is doing extraordinary business in Tamil Nadu and overseas alike and thanks to the controversy over GST dialogues, film started doing well in non-Tamil markets as well.
