Sarkar filmmakers agree to remove scenes

According to the latest report Ilayathalapathy Vijay and the makers agreed to remove objectionable scenes from the movie. Sarkar, produced by Sun Pictures, stars Vijay and Keerthi Suresh in key roles, and was released on November 6. It is directed by AR Murugadoss and has music by Oscar winner AR Rahman.

Vijay’s Diwali release ‘Sarkar’ for its reported reference to former chief minister J Jayalalithaa, besides the alleged depiction of certain government schemes in bad light.

Senior AIADMK ministers demanded that the contentious scenes be deleted, and threatened to initiate legal action if the latter failed to comply. Now, the makers and Vijay have agreed to remove “objectionable” scenes and “mute” an apparent referrence to the late J Jayalalithaa, an industry body said Thursday, as the movie faced a backlash from the ruling AIADMK over depiction of its welfare schemes and its leader.

The AIADMK was up in arms against Sarkar with senior AIADMK ministers demanding deletion of the contentious scenes, besides threatening to initiate legal action if the film crew failed to comply.

While a theatre owners’ body announced that the edited version would be screened from Friday afternoon, sources in the Sarkar crew said a “compromise” has been reached.

M. Subramaniam, president, West Zone Theatre Owners’ Association, said they had spoken to Sun Pictures and the film’s Tamil Nadu distributor, telling them “we cannot screen the movie with objectionable scenes.”

“They said they will sit at the editing table tonight and edit the scenes. Following a letter (of approval) from the Censor Board, we will start screening the edited version tomorrow from the matinee show (2.30 PM),” he told

Further, the name of a woman character apparently referring to former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa would be “muted,” he added. The Tamil Nadu Multiplex Theatre Owners’ Assiociation described the move as a “welcome” one.
