Madras HC dismisses plea to revoke censor certificate to ‘Mersal’

Sharing is Caring

New Delhi, Oct 27 (ANI): The Madras High Court on Friday dismissed a petition seeking to revoke the censor certificate of the controversial movie ‘Mersal,’ citing that it was only an imaginative story and that the freedom of expression was there for all. ‘Mersal’ was in the midst of a controversy after the Tamil Nadu unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded the removal of certain dialogues, which take a dig at the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Digital India programme. The High Court, in this context, said, “A film is only a imaginative story and it is not real life. If someone doesn’t like a film, a person can refrain from viewing it. The freedom of expression is there for all.”
