In a statement, the actor thanked fans and supporters for standing by him. The movie has become a box office hit.
“There was also some opposition to Mersal, which is a hit. As a response to that, my friends from the film world ie actors and actresses, directors, bodies like SIAA (South Indian Artistes Association) and TFPC (Tamil Film Producers Council) and popular leaders at national level, state political leaders and political representatives extended big support to me and the Mersal crew,” he said in the statement.
