Vijay Getting Trolled for Imitating Pawan Kalyan

Vijay Getting Trolled for Imitating Pawan Kalyan

If the grapevine is anything to go by, "Sarkar" team has agreed to mute scenes that have been termed controversial. A rough translation of his tweet says: "Once the censor board certifies a film, staging protests to demand the removal of certain scenes, obstructing the screenings, and tampering with the banners are all unlawful activities".

Starring Vijay in the lead role, Sarkar is directed by AR Murugadoss.

After facing many hurdles, Vijay-starrer "Sarkar" hit the theatres on Tuesday on the occasion of Diwali.

Tamil Nadu Information and Broadcasting Minister Kadambur Raju was the first official from the state government to express his displeasure with a few scenes from Sarkar and sought their removal from the film. The party also has taken offence to comments made regarding freebies that are distributed during election suggesting that a scene in the film, which burns the said freebies, can cause violence in the state. "I strong condemn this act".

"It isn't new for this government to act and pressurize against a film like Sarkar, which has completed its censor formalities properly".

Rajinikanth "strongly condemned" the demands for deletion of scenes. "Commercialised politicians will soon be vanished and the good people would win", Haasan tweeted.

Even then, the film has registered a record-breaking opening, and according to Tollywood reports, the film has collected Rs 75 crore at the worldwide box office on its very first day of release.

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