Controversial Sarkar Scenes Cut, No More AIADMK Protests: Minister

Chennai: With the ruling AIAMDK opposed to the Vijay-starring "Sarkar" over certain scenes and a character's name, the producer and director of the Tamil movie have obtained CBFC's permission to voluntarily delete some visuals and mute some dialogues, said an official. Information and Publicity Minister Kadambur C Raju said, "We believe they (Sarkar team) have realised that they have hurt people's sentiments and have come forward to remove the is welcome".

There have been protests by AIADMK workers in the state against the film. Meanwhile, the film's director AR Murugadoss has also filed a petition and got anticipatory bail in Madras High Court.

The AIADMK's objection was to the scene that showed the actor throwing out mixie and grinder - given free by the government to the poor - into the fire. "Discussing the changes made to the film that will be applicable from Friday, distributor Tirupur Subramaniam said, that among other things, the name "Komalavalli" would be muted in the film". It is directed by A R Murugadoss and has music by Oscar victor A R Rahman.

The removal of the scenes prompted Raju to declare that the "issue has come to an end" and that the AIADMK would not hold anymore protests.
