Chennai. The producers of the Diwali release Tamil movie ‘Mersal’, Sri Thenandal Films, has profoundly thanked both BJP and Congress for the success of the film. The extraordinary box office collection and the publicity worldwide & in India, across all the news channels and the other media, would not have been possible if it is not for the two national political parties fighting against each other, the producers told Faking News.


Initially, the protest started from a few Tamilnadu BJP leaders against a few scenes in the movie where the protagonist, actor Vijay, speaks badly about Indian GST, compared to that of Singaporean tax system. The leaders accused that Vijay has political ambitions and his remarks in the movie are wrong and politically motivated. Then the national level leaders joined in. ‘It is only after OfficeOfRG tweeted about Mersal and against the PM, we see the highest box office collection’ the producers told Faking News.

“Free publicity is what all the movie produces long for after every movie release. Do you know that we spend about 25% of the movie’s budget on the promotions alone. When Mersal hashtag runs across all the news channels, local and national, we are overjoyed. When we hear about the @OfficeOfRG’s tweet, supporting the film goes viral, we plan to release the movie in Russia and Kazakhstan”, she further added.

Meanwhile, the producers of ‘Indu Sarkar’ are planning on a re-release of the movie, owing to the sudden popularity of the movie, thanks to non-stop TV debate fights between Congress and BJP.
