Controversial scenes of 'Sarkar' cut, AIADMK relents

Thalapathy Vijay's Sarkar seems to run into controversies. Now, since its release it has drawn the ire of the ruling AIADMK party with senior leaders such as Fisheries minister D Jayakumar, Law minister CV Shanmugham, and the Minister for Information and Publicity, Kadambur Raju, registering their outrage against the film for allegedly portraying certain government schemes in a bad light.

There have been protests by AIADMK workers in the state against the film. The ruling AIADMK party members who are part of the state cabinet threatened the makers of "Sarkar" to take legal action if the objectionable scenes are not removed with immediate effect. A scene where a mixer grinder was being burnt has been deleted.

The case came up for hearing this afternoon and the judges have ordered the police to file their cases and not to arrest A. R. Murugadoss till November 27th when the hearing has been adjourned to. It also said that no viewer was offended by what they saw.

Defending the protests, Raju said AIADMK workers "ranging from an ordinary cadre to the Chief Minister (K Palaniswami)", consider Jayalalithaa as their "God".

"We believe they (Sarkar team) have realised that they have hurt people's sentiments and have come forward to remove the scenes.it is welcome".

"Governments that does not have the guts to accept criticisms will derail". He "strongly condemned" the demands for deletion of scenes.

In one scene, director Murugadoss (in a cameo) hurls a government freebie into a fire.
