On Sunday, the film production house said that if needed, it would delete scenes that have caused "misunderstanding", even as the Congress slammed the saffron party for demanding cuts. Earlier Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had asked PM Narendra Modi to not "demon-etise Tamil pride" by interfering in Mersal.
Farhan Akhtar could not stand this and immediately gave out his reaction on Twitter.

Akhtar tweeted, tagging the BJP leader after the former, while criticising controversial Tamil film "Mersal" and its makers on a TV interview, said: "In any case, most of our film stars have very low IQ, very low general knowledge". "Shame sir", the actor wrote, reports news agency IANS. "And to all film people in his ranks".

Directed by Atlee, Mersal stars Vijay in the roles of a village head, a doctor and a magician.
