Varalaxmi Sarathkumar Sarkar Controversy Reaction Thalapathy Vijay AR Murugadoss

Sarkar collects Rs 75 Cr on its opening day

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.

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.

"The protests (against the film) will not continue", he told reporters here.

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

To a question, Raju said the party's opposition had nothing to do with criticism of the government as a film earlier had even made some references to AIADMK founder and late Chief Minister M G Ramachandran, who enjoyed cult status among the masses.

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

The film with Vijay and Keerthi Suresh in the lead roles, was directed by AR Murugadoss and the music was set to tune by Oscar victor AR Rahman.

The filmmakers will release the new version, which is trimmed by.05 seconds with three cuts - beeping Komala out of the name Komalavalli; scene of mixer and grinder being trimmed and the term "Podhupani thurai" being muted.

Law Minister C Ve Shanmugham had said certain scenes amounted to inciting violence and warned of "action".

Sarkar is produced by Sun Pictures with music composed by ARRahman.
