Rajinikanth slams ruling AIADMK for protests against Vijay-starrer ‘Sarkar’

AR Murugadoss directorial Sarkar came under the scanner after AIADMK found certain scenes objectionable.

"Through this movie, an attempt is made to instigate violence in society". This protest, which led to multiple shows of the film being cancelled in Madurai, Kovai andChennai, does not seem to have affected the box office collection of the film on Day 3. The scene is a swipe at the freebie culture that exists in Tamil Nadu.

This is for the first time Rajini has openly come out in support of a movie.

Australian police say stabbing attack linked to terrorism
In a later statement, police said the man assaulted police, fled on foot, then was shot while lunging at police with the knife. Three people have been stabbed, including the fatality. "Unfortunately one is dead at the scene, two others are at hospital".

AIADMK workers staged protests against the film Thursday after several ministers took exception to scenes in the film criticising welfare schemes and a reference to late chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

The filmmakers will release the new version, which is trimmed by.05 seconds with three cuts - beeping Komala out of the name Komalavalli; scene of mixer and grinder being trimmed and the term "Podhupani thurai" being muted.

They also opposed the usage of the name "Komalavalli" for the antagonist, played by Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, claiming that Komalavalli was Jayalalithaa's birth name and that the movie shows her in a bad light. Meanwhile, the film's director AR Murugadoss has also filed a petition and got anticipatory bail in Madras High Court. Senior leaders of the AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu warned filmmaker AR Murugadoss and team with dire consequences if they don't listen to their demands.
