QChennai: Govt Warns of Action Against Sarkar; New Trekking Rules

Diwali Dhamaka! Thalapathy Vijay's Sarkar BEATS Baahubali 2 with the highest Day 1 collection in Kerala

The director moved the Madras High Court a day after a group of policemen were seen at his Chennai residence.

The controversy surrounding an objectionable scene in Vijay-starrer Sarkar has finally come to an end.

Sarkar landed in trouble when AIADMK ministers claimed that the film criticised the government welfare schemes which were introduced by late chief minister J Jayalalithaa. Ever since its release, many AIADMK ministers and party cadres expressed their displeasure over certain scenes in the film.

Passing interim orders on the anticipatory bail application filed by Murugadoss, who apprehended arrest in connection with some complaints lodged against him, Justice G K Ilanthiraiyan directed him to co-operate with the police and adjourned the matter to November 27. It also said that no viewer was offended by what they saw.

AIADMK has alleged that scenes in the movie criticise previous Tamil Nadu Government of J Jayalalithaa.

According to trade analysts, the film is unstoppable in the US. The scene is a swipe at the freebie culture that exists in Tamil Nadu.

Actor and MNM founder Kamal Haasan who was the first from the industry to defend Sarkar, had tweeted: "Employing pressure tactics through its tyrannical power to sabotage a duly certified film like Sarkar is not new to this government".

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.

Scenes showing people burning freebies like mixers and grinders had been removed. However, Sun Picture is yet to make an official statement regarding the same.
