#Mersal 1st Half: From #USA – @MsKajalAggarwal as Dr.AnuPallavi.. @Atlee_dir has got the best in him!! Mersal has faced several issues on its way to the big screen: a title row, a petition against excessive pricing, a strike and confusion about the censor certificate. But now the makers and Vijay’s fans can heave a sigh of relief as the issues have been resolved. Vadivelu made a great Comeback! @actorvijay @Atlee_dir Combo Done it Again.”
