Tamil Star Hero Vijay’s Mersal(Adirindi in Telugu) , directed by Atlee released worldwide, to massive opening collections, beating Kabali’s record of being the highest. Now, after the release, the film has started to face more critical issues. Apart from the fact that many politicians were not happy with a few dialogues in the movie, many doctors have protested against the film for its portrayal of doctors in a bad light.
A report suggests that many doctors have taken to social media sites to share piracy links of the film, to directly affect its collection. It is reported that leading doctors have said that they will not approach courts, as it will be giving indirect promotion to the film, but they will be asking medical practitioners and paramedical staff to boycott the movie. This sad state has emerged after a substantial number of doctors started protesting against the film, as it deals with the protagonist, Vijay, fighting against corruption and mafia in the medical industry.
