Vijay-starrer ‘Sarkar’ has triggered huge protests from the ruling AIADMK for its controversial content against the State government. Even as Ministers slammed the movie and its makers, members of the ruling party staged protests in front of theatres screening the film.
Soon after reports claimed on Thursday night that ‘Sarkar’ production team has come forward to remove some controversial scenes, Sun Pictures, the film’s producer, tweeted late in the night that the police had reached director A R Murugadoss’ house to reach him.
Though the police sources had denied any such move, the tweet by Sun Pictures created a huge furore. Soon, Murugadoss himself tweeted: “Police had come to my house late tonight and banged the door several times.Since I was not there they left the premises. Right now I was told there is no police outside my house.”
South Indian Actors Association general secretary and Tamil Film Producers Council president Vishal posted: “Police in Dir Murugadoss s home????? For Wat?? Hoping and really hoping that nothin unforeseen happens. Once again. Censor has cleared the film and the content is watched by public.den why all this hue and cry.”
In the meantime, superstar Rajinikanth came out in support of ‘Sarkar’ team and tweeted: “After the Censor Board approved the film and released it, demanding certain scenes to be removed and damaging the film banners are unlawful acts. I strongly condemn this.”
Earlier, Kamal Haasan and others tweeted in support of the movie’s team.
