The Telugu dubbed version of Vijay’s ‘Mersal’ has been titled ‘Adirindhi’ and is being presented by popular producer Sharrath Marrar under the banner Northstar Entertainment. ‘Adirindhi’’ was slated to be released today, October 27th, 2017 but the makers decided to postpone the release citing censoring as the reasons for delay. It is being reported that the local censor board has been delaying the censoring process for ‘Adirindhi’ which has caused the delay and hence the postpone of release. But now, the chief of CBFC Prasoon Joshi has criticised the makers of ‘Adirindhi’ and said that the film has been certified already without any cuts. Prasson Joshi also said that the communication between the makers could be the reason for the postponement of the release.
“The process of approving a dubbed version of a film is the same as certifying a film for the first time. The CBFC website mentions very clearly how much time each part of the certification process takes. So far, the filmmakers had not received any communication about the Telugu certification, so how can they accuse us of delaying the release of their film? This is not done. The film certificate has been issued for the Telugu dubbed version without any cuts,” Prasoon Joshi told Indiatoday.
While the Tamil version, ‘Mersal’, has been in the news since release for the GST dialogues and scenes in the film, looks like the Telugu version too will hit some roadblocks before it sees the light of the day. Directed by Atlee, Vijay will be seen in triple roles in ‘Mersal’ for the first time in his career.
