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

In Kerala

After removing the scene featuring Murugadoss and muting the character name of Varalakshmi, the film has been recensored and uploaded on the QUBE.

After the plagarism charges over the story of Vijay's ' Sarkar' directed by AR Murugadoss before the release of the film, now the film has become a subject of political contention as some scenes in the film have come under the scanner and are being seen as objectionable by AIADMK.

The AIAMDK government under late J. Jayalalithaa offered free mixer, grinder, laptops and others to the poor.

The AIADMK is critical of the scene as former CM J Jayalalithaa back in 2011 gave away mixies, table fans and grinders, and interestingly they had the pictures of the CM on them.

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

Party cadres protested outside the theatres which screened the movie in several places and damaged the banners on Thursday and Friday morning.

Earlier in the day, actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan tweeted: "It is nothing new for the state government to exert illegal political pressure on movies that got proper certification". "The businessmen group will go and the good people who would come to power will win", Kamal Haasan said.

The Madras High Court restrained the police from arresting AR Murugadoss till 27 November after the director filed a plea seeking anticipatory bail, according to Hindustan Times.

The AIADMK ministers demanded deletion of the contentious scenes, besides threatening to initiate legal action if the film crew failed to comply.
