Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], October 21 (ANI): Actor Kamal Hassan on Friday showed support to the makers of Tamil film Mersal after the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Tamil Nadu chief demanded cuts in the film for showing Centre's schemes and Hindu religion in poor light.

"Mersal was certified. Dont re-censor it. Counter criticism with logical response. Dont silence critics. India will shine when it speaks," the 62-year-old actor wrote on Twitter.

On Friday, Tamilisai Soundararajan condemned the 'misconceptions' being promoted in the film about central government schemes, including Goods and Services Tax, demonetization and digital India, saying when celebrities talk about certain schemes it misleads the public and carries effect in the minds of the people.

Mersal is a Tamil movie directed by Atlee and co-written by Atlee and K. V. Vijayendra Prasad. (ANI)
