Sarkar row: Madras HC restrains Tamil Nadu police from arresting AR Murugadoss

Even if a "misinformation" in a film passed the censor test, it "has to be stopped", it said in an apparent defence of the protests against the scenes and the demand for their removal.

AR Murugadoss directed "Sarkar", a political thriller, hit the screens on Tuesday.

In 2017, the Newsminute Editor-in-Chief Dhanya Rajendran was severely trolled by Vijay fans on Twitter for tweeting that Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma-starrer "Jab Harry Met Sejal" was worse than the Vijay's "Sura". So the issue has come to an end. Talking about the film, the director had earlier said, After Thupakki and Kaththi, we wanted to give something new and better to the audience, and hence we came up with this film called Sarkar. However, government forcing makers to chop-off scenes didnt go well with Vijay fans and they started thrashing and burning freebies and posted the vides of same in social media. "I have been working tirelessly for my party for the last 44 years and understand the pain of the ordinary people more than these stars who just talk without knowing the ground reality".

A name said to be referring to Jayalalithaa was used for a negative character and therefore the opposition to it was "wholehearted" from the party workers, he added.Revenue Minister Udhayakumar thanked the "Sarkar" crew for removing the scenes.

The AIADMK was up in arms against "Sarkar" with senior ministers demanding deletion of the scenes reportedly showing mixer-grinders being burnt, seen as an obvious reference to a freebie scheme involving the object.

Law Minister C Ve Shanmugham said certain scenes amounted to inciting violence and warned of action. It is directed by AR Murugadoss and has music by Oscar victor AR Rahman.
