Vijay’s Mersal has fallen prey piracy as several download links have surfaced on torrent sites. Even after the filmmakers have taken strict measures, torrent sites such as piratebay, Tamilrockers and more are circulating torrent files. This comes right after the film was slammed by BJP members for a scene about GST.
At a glance, about 8000 people have downloaded the movie from piratebay alone. Tamilrockers seems to be currently setting up a new host site, however, people have downloaded the film from tamilrocker.fi (proxy server) as well. Especially after the Mersal vs Modi controversy, there are separate download links for deleted/to be deleted scenes.
The film, also starring Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabu and Nithya Menon centres around a corrupt doctor and medical system. The controversial scene itself speaks about how the government has failed its people even after levying high amount of taxes.
The scene alone was leaked on Twitter as well and has since gone viral on social media. Now, movie goers have credited PM Modi and his government for giving unwanted political attention to an otherwise entertaining movie.
The film collected Rs 50 crore in Tamil Nadu in three days and became on the fastest films to hit the mark. Reports suggest that it has collected Rs 75 crore (approximately) worldwide after holding well in USA, Australia, Malayasia and UK.
