Tamil Nadu law minister Shanmugam condemns Vijay's 'Sarkar'


After the plagarism charges over the story of Vijay's ' Sarkar' directed by AR Murugadoss before the release of the film, now the film has become a subject of political contention as some scenes in the film have come under the scanner and are being seen as objectionable by AIADMK.

The said scene features director A. R. Murugadoss making a special guest appearance and disposing a mixer bearing veteran actor Pala.

"Through this movie, an attempt is made to instigate violence in society".

"It is against the law to hold protests seeking removal of some scenes from a Censor board certified film and trying to stall the screening and damaging the banners", he tweeted. Head of the Tamil Nadu Theatres Association Abirami Ramanathan confirmed to TNM about the cuts carried out in the movie.

Chennai: With the ruling AIAMDK opposed to the Vijay-starring "Sarkar" over certain scenes and a character's name, the producer and director of the Tamil movie have obtained CBFC's permission to voluntarily delete some visuals and mute some dialogues, said an official. These items were the freebies announced by former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa when she came to power in 2011. If they (the makers) remove these scenes, then it is good. Meanwhile, the film's director AR Murugadoss has also filed a petition and got anticipatory bail in Madras High Court. They are alleging that certain scenes in the movie criticize the previous Tamil Nadu Govt led by J Jayalalithaa.
