He took to Twitter and wrote in Tamil: "To protest for the removal of certain scenes from the movie and stop it from being screened after the Censor Board has certified it is against the law". 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 scenes.it is welcome".

Party workers have staged protests across the State, forcing distributors on Thursday to agree to cut the contentious scenes from screenings of the film beginning Friday night.

The case came up for hearing this afternoon and the judges have ordered the police to file their cases and not to arrest A. R. Murugadoss till November 27th when the hearing has been adjourned to.

The ruling AIADMK was up in arms against Tamil film star Vijay's Diwali release "Sarkar" for its reported reference to former chief minister J Jayalalithaa, besides the alleged depiction of certain government schemes in a bad light. It is directed by A R Murugadoss and has music by Oscar victor A R Rahman. A scene where a mixer grinder was being burnt has been deleted.

Billed as an "emergency protest", event organizers Democrats Abroad and Moveon.org described it as a demonstration against U.S. Graham at the time said: "Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency".

The other reason for the ruling party opposing the movie is the name of a character "Komalavalli" which they say is the birth name of their late leader Jayalalithaa. "So the issue has come to an end".

He had approached the court after state ministers voiced their opposition to the movie with Law Minister Shanmugam threatening legal action.

"Sarkar" had earlier courted a row after an aspiring filmmaker claimed that the film's story was his, following which director Murugadoss went in for a compromise with him.
