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

Irene MckinneyNov 10, 2018

Raju said "AIADMK workers, ranging from supporters to Chief Minister (K Palaniswami)", treat Jayalalithaa as "God".

A day later, the Madras High Court restrained the state police from arresting AR Murugadoss till 27 November.

The 2 scenes that have been agreed to be removed include removing of the name "Komalavalli", which AIADMK claims is the birth name of J Jayalalithaa.

In the meanwhile, actor Varalaxmi Sarathkumar - who plays the role of Komalavalli in the film - also took to Twitter to share her opinion.

Released earlier this week on the festive occasion of Diwali, "Thalapathy" Vijay's Sarkar has been facing a major setback after a particular scene in the film irked the ruling state government.

"We have nothing to do with the film or Vijay", Raju said describing the star as a "dear friend".

Fans of "dear brother Vijay" also benefited from government welfare schemes like the free mixer-grinder and fan initiative, he told reporters in Madurai. "I strongly- condemn this act", the superstar tweeted in Tamil. The ruling AIADMK party has opposed some of the scenes in the film and filed a complaint in the Madras High Court. It attracted severe criticism from AIADMK with the law minister C Ve Shanmugam threatening legal action against the movie if the controversial scenes are not deleted.

However, the makers of the film Sun Picture are yet to officially announce if they are muting scenes. Head of the Tamil Nadu Theatres Association Abirami Ramanathan confirmed to TNM about the cuts carried out in the movie.

Anyway, such controversy is no new of the director and the hero for their last Mersal faced similar issues which only added publicity and looks like even Sarkar is getting there.
