Hurdles after hurdles and the team just gets stronger! Atlee's Mersal faced a lot of trouble before the film's release, right from the title issue to the censoring issue, the release of the Telugu version, to the strong opposition for two scenes by the ruling party. What not has the team seen? 

However, one recent issue post the release is that the film was refused to be screened in a few theaters in Bengaluru, owing to a small fight between actor Vijay's fans and the Bengaluru locals. The muliplexes had not stopped the screeingm though.

Nevertheless, the issue has now been solved, and the theaters have resumed screening of  the film. This has gone to prove that the film will soon resolve the release of the Telugu version- Adhirindhi soon, too!
