Mersal is one of the most expected movies in Tamil cinema. Mersal teaser has created world record and raised the expectations of Mersal to a whole new level. Vijay fans and cinema lovers are eagerly waiting for the release of Mersal on Diwali but recently a press release has been released by the Tamil Film producers council stating that there will be no new releases from October 6th onwards in Tamil Nadu to protest against Tamil Nadu Government’s 10% local body entertainment tax (LBET) in addition to the 18% and 28% GST.
Like Mersal many other films which were ready to release this month might be postponed to a different date. The following is the official Press release by Tamil Film producers council.
