Rahul Gandhi spites PM with ‘Mersal’ jibe, and the producer walks a tightrope. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday jumped into the 'Mersal' film controversy in support of Vijay starrer movie. He accused PM Modi of interfering into the matter. The Tamil movie is under the attack from the BJP for making fun of demonetisation and GST over which Tamilnadu BJP has demanded to cut the scenes related to demonetisation and GST from the film. The movie producer met TN BJP president Tamilisai Soundararajan in this regard.
