In response to the controversy, the Sarkar team has now agreed to remove the specific scene from the film with the newly edited version planned to be played in theatres from today (November 9) afternoon.
According to Shanmugam, the actor is instigating violence against the government "under the guise of the movie". Meanwhile, PMK founder S Ramadoss wondered whether director AR Murugadoss and hero Vijay should not have social responsibility when they speak about political responsibility in the movie.
While rightly conceding that there was no relationship between the state government and the Central Board of Film Certification, Raju, however, said, "But still, it has come to our attention". Soon several celebrities came out to support AR Murugadoss.
Tamil Nadu Law minister CV Shanmugam on Thursday condemned Tamil actor Vijay's recent release "Sarkar" for allegedly attempting to instigate violence in society and said that it is not less than a terrorist instigating people for violence.
The counsel also informed the judge that the objectionable portions had already been removed from the film. In that scene, he's seen throwing a mixer-grinder into a fire with the picture of the chief minister.
Sarkar, starring Vijay, was released on November 6 worldwide.
Sarkar director AR Murugadoss on Friday morning moved the Madras High Court seeking an anticipatory bail.
