Rajinikanth hits out at AIADMK for protests against Vijay-starrer ‘Sarkar’

Tamil megastar Rajinikanth Friday lashed out at the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu for its protests against obvious scenes in actor Vijay’s Diwali birth Sarkar, questioning the reason at the serve of protesting against a film licensed by the Censor Board.He “strongly condemned” the demands for deletion of scenes.“It is against the law to succor protests seeking disposing of of some scenes from a Censor board licensed film and searching to stall the screening and negative the banners,” he tweeted.“I strongly condemn these,” he added.The makers of ‘Sarkar’ had agreed to lift away “objectionable” scenes and “silent” an apparent reference to the leisurely J Jayalalithaa, an trade body stated Thursday, as the film faced a backlash from the ruling AIADMK over depiction of its welfare schemes and its chief.The AIADMK used to be up in fingers against ‘Sarkar’ with senior AIADMK ministers demanding deletion of the contentious scenes, besides threatening to galvanize fair appropriate action if the film crew did not conform.
Legislation Minister C Ve Shanmugham stated obvious scenes amounted to inciting violence and warned of action.Whereas a theatre owners’ body presented that the edited model would be screened from Friday afternoon, sources in the ‘Sarkar’ crew stated a “compromise” has been reached.‘Sarkar,’ produced by Solar Pictures, stars Vijay and Keerthi Suresh in key roles, and used to be released on November 6. It is directed by AR Murugadoss and has song by Oscar winner AR Rahman.
