Rajinikanth condemns unlawful acts against Tamil film 'Sarkar'

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

Superstar Rajinikanth today criticised the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu for protesting against certain scenes in actor Vijay's Diwali release 'Sarkar', questioning the rationale behind attacking a film that has been cleared by the censor board. He condemned unlawful acts such as damaging the film's banners and demanding the removal of certain scenes from the film.

Though Vijay and AR Murugadoss Sarkar got below average talk, somehow the scenes about Section 49P and other scenes where the hero questions the ruling governments have struck a chord with the audiences.

Since the release of the film, many AIADMK ministers and party cadres have expressed their displeasure about certain scenes in the "Sarkar". He took to Twitter and lashed out at the people involved in this unruly act.

"I strongly condemn these", he added.

After the scale of protests gradually increased, the makers finally gave in and agreed to remove the objectionable scenes from the film. A rough translation of his tweet says: "Employing pressure tactics through its tyrannical power to sabotage a duly certified film like Sarkar is not new to this government".

Rajinikanth "strongly condemned" the demands for deletion of scenes.

Sarah Saunders, the press secretary, announced the suspension of Acosta's pass due to his "placing his hands" on the female aide. It's incredible that even when the Trump administration is on the right side of the argument, they still manage to botch it up.


Despite opening to mixed reviews and getting embroiled in controversies, "Sarkar" managed to gross over Rs 100 crore in just two days at the box-office. They claim that the film is depicting their party and the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in a bad light.

In the film, Vijay plays an NRI who returns to India to vote, only to realise his vote has been cast illegally.
