Since the release of ‘Mersal’ movie there were criticisms about some of the dialogues which had targeted government initiatives such as GST and demonetisation. Marimuthu, BJP Virudhunagar District Secretary, filed a complaint at Srivilliputhur town police stating that he had received abusive message about Narendra Modi on Facebook. 
Based on the complaint, police arrested Thirumurugan, a Vijay fan, from Ramakrishnapuram. Police sources said that as Vijay had acted in movie ‘Sachin’, Thirumurugan had used the name to send an abusive message.
