Sarkar Controversy Hots Up, Vijay Not happy With The Cuts?

With the  Tamil Nadu sarkar  fuming against  the  new Vijay blockbuster Sarkar it’s time for the  film’s team to do some  quick damage control.

News reports suggest that the  film’s  producers  and director Murugadoss have  agreed  to  cut the dialogues and scenes that allegedly show the Tamil Nadu government in a  poor light.

Apparently   the film’s hero Vijay , said to be contemplating a career in active politics, was dead set against  the cuts.

A well-informed  source reveals, “When sections of  the Tamil Nadu government  threatened  action against  the  film and its team for showing  the Government in an unflattering light, Vijay made  it very clear that  the no cuts would be made. He was confident of  the  audiences’ support. Since  the  entire Sarkar team  including director Murugadoss  takes Vijay’s wish as  the final  word, they  were adamant not to  succumb to government  pressures. But then the  cops came knocking at director Murugadoss’  late in the night on Thursday night. That’s  when the  Sarkar team  decided to  go ahead with the cuts.”

While Vijay and Murugadoss remained unavailable  for comment, Vijay’s colleague Vishal Krishnan  said, “I fail to see why  cuts  should be made when the  Censor Board  of Film Certification has cleared  a  film. My Tamil film  IrumbuThirai was  targeted by a section  of the Bharatiya Janta Party . It  showed how personal data was being stolen through theadhaar card. After  the  protests  some shows  of  Irumbu Thirai  had to be cancelled in Chennai. Luckily there was absolutely no dispute with the censor board.They passed  the film without any cuts. I showed  the honourable Supreme Court ruling on the issue.”
