Sarkar Bow Down to AIADMK Pressure, Agree to Cuts

These scenes, that have drawn criticism, include a purported dig at welfare schemes made popular by late Chief Ministers, M Karunanidhi and J Jayalalithaa.

Chennai: Tamil superstar Rajinikanth on Friday lashed out at the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu for its protests against certain scenes in actor Vijay's Diwali release "Sarkar", questioning the rationale behind protesting against a film certified by the Censor Board. It also said that no viewer was offended by what they saw.

Earlier, AIADMK workers had staged protests across Tamil Nadu outside theatres screening the film, and had even damaged the banners of the movie. Now, as the makers of the film Sun Pictures Tweeted, police have been at the director's home to arrest him.

Madras High Court on Friday restrained Tamil Nadu police from arresting "Sarkar" movie director AR Murugadoss till 27th of November.

While rightly conceding that there was no relationship between the state government and the Central Board of Film Certification, Raju, however, said, "But still, it has come to our attention".

It is Belfast after "breccia" will continue to obey the Customs Union of the EU and numerous rules of the single market. The results indicated that 105 council areas that voted Leave in 2016 would now vote Remain.

Scenes showing people burning freebies like mixers and grinders had been removed. "So the issue has come to an end".

Vijay's 2017 film "Mersal" too had ran into a controversy after BJP objected to some scenes critical of GST among others.

On Thursday, the AIADMK was up in arms against "Sarkar" with senior state ministers demanding deletion of the contentious scenes, besides threatening to initiate legal action if the film crew failed to comply.

However, the film has found support from the DMK with its leader Sarvanan expressed his displeasure on the AIADMK calling the filmmaker Naxal.
