Tamil star Vijay’s new film Sarkar is facing stiff opposition from the AIADMK workers throughout Tamil Nadu. The protesters are angry over some references made to the late J Jayalalithaa, former chief minister of the state, in the film.

Now, the producer of the film, Sun Pictures, who voluntarily approached the Censor Board, has altered some scenes.
Sun Pictures has deleted the scene in which a mixer and grinder is thrown in the fire. The sound of ‘Komala’ from the word ‘Komalavalli’ has been muted. It has also been removed from the subtitles. A dialogue consisting the word ‘Podhhupaaniththurai’ in reel 4 has been muted. Another dialogue with the words ‘56 varusham’ in reel 7 has been silenced as well.


In the wake of the protests, film’s director AR Murugadoss had requested for an anticipatory bail. The Madras High Court has asked the Chennai Police to not arrest the Murugadoss till November 27.

In his petition, Murugadoss had said that he did not make the movie with an intention to hurt anyone. The petition added that people or activists have not protested against the movie but it’s the ruling government, which is protesting and it is against the law to demand deletion of scenes after the movie has been certified by the censor board. After hearing the director’s bail plea, the Madras high court restrained Tamil Nadu police from arresting him.
