Filmmaker AR Murugadoss’s recently-released movie Sarkar starring Vijay is facing the backlash from the AIADMK government. Many senior ministers of the party took offence to the content shown in the film and claim that Sarkar is showing the government in poor light. AIADMK cadres indulged in tearing down the banners and set them ablaze in front of the theatres.
After much furore, the makers of Sarkar have decided to remove a few controversial scenes from the film. The president of Tamil Nadu Theatre Association confirmed the same and said, “I spoke to Sun Pictures team and as a norm whenever there are controversial scenes or scenes that hurt the public sentiment in the film, we talk to the team asking them to remove it. So, we spoke to Sun Pictures and they have agreed to delete scenes like freebies (mixie and grinder) being set to fire.”
