Tamil Nadu Law Minister CV Shanmugham called Tollywood actor Vijay a “naxalite”. The minister condemned that his new release “Sarkar” will instigate violence in the society and compared the film to a “terrorist” activity.
The law minister also threatened to “take legal actions against the actor and the team” and alleged that the movie “strives to pull down a democratically elected government “.
The movie was released yesterday and the first day collection of the movie has beaten Bahubali 2. And within two days of its release the movie has sweeped Rs.100 crores.
Yesterday, another state minister Kadambur C Raju also threatened that action will be taken if the controversial scenes are not removed. He also said that he will consult the Chief Minster Edapaddi Palaniswami about taking action.
Meanwhile, supporters of AIADMK staged protest outside a multiplex in Madurai. “We’ll continue to protest outside theatres till controversial scenes and dialogues aren’t removed. We appeal exhibitors not to show it,” said AIADMK MLA VV Rajan Chellappa. However, a activist has submitted a complaint to Chennai Police Commissioner against the movie director AR Murugadoss.
Earlier, Vijay’s 2017 movie ‘Mersal’ had created controversy and was objected by BJP alleging that the movie promotes “misconceptions” about the central government’s schemes.
In a democratic country like India, people elected representatives are becoming despotic. The ruling government is not ready to face any questions raised against them. If some tries to project their misconduct or speak against them, they are being suppressed
