Producer has no clarity on Adirindi censor outcome
Tamil superstar Vijay’s recent biggie Mersal emerged as a huge blockbuster worldwide after its release on October 18th. The film became a cynosure all over India after BJP leaders initiated a political controversy claiming that the scathing dialogues on GST have belittled the government’s policy.
The film’s Telugu version, Adirindi, was supposed to hit the screens simultaneously with the Tamil version. But, the delay in completing the censor formalities has led to successive deferments. Finally, after much delay the film has cleared censors and has been confirmed to hit the screens on November 9th.
However, there is no clarity yet on whether the objectionable dialogues in the film were expunged or not in the Telugu version. Even producer Sharrat Marrar, who bought the Telugu rights of the film, has no idea on what is the outcome of the censor. It is heard that Tamil producers have overseen the censor formalities of the Telugu version, too. Sources close to them are saying that the dialogues on GST have not been removed as the issue has boiled down.
So, we have to wait till the Telugu version’s release to get a clarity on whether the controversial dialogues were deleted or not.
