Sarkar: Controversial scenes removed, recensored! ARM gets bail!

Sarkar has been edited and re-censored after members of AIADMKprotested against the portrayal of government schemes and former chief minister JJayalalithaa in the film. "So the issue has come to an end", Raju said. This protest, which led to multiple shows of the film being cancelled in Madurai, Kovai andChennai, does not seem to have affected the box office collection of the film on Day 3.

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

The counsel also informed the judge that the objectionable portions had already been removed from the film.

"In future, filmmakers should avoid including scenes that would hurt the sentiments, especially relating to Amma's (Jayalalithaa's) sacrifices and hardwork", he said.


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". In that scene, he's seen throwing a mixer-grinder into a fire with the picture of the chief minister. Following the controversy over Sarkar film, AR Murugadoss had applied for anticipatory bail at Madras High Court. Shanmugam compared the scenes (burning of freebies) in the movie with terrorist activity aimed at instigating violence against the state 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.

If the grapevine is anything to go by, "Sarkar" team has agreed to mute scenes that have been termed controversial.
