Vijay's 2017 film "Mersal" too had ran into a controversy after BJP objected to some scenes critical of GST among others. Ever since its release, many AIADMK ministers and party cadres expressed their displeasure over certain scenes in the film.

Scenes showing people burning freebies like mixers and grinders had been removed. It also said that no viewer was offended by what they saw.

Tamil Nadu politics turned ugly on Thursday night after a sensational tweet by Sun Pictures, the makers of controversial film Sarkar, said that cops had arrived at the residence of film director AR Murugadoss to arrest him.

Tamil superstar Rajinikanth Friday lashed out at the ruling AIADMK for staging protests against "Sarkar", questioning the rationale behind protesting against a film certified by the Censor Board.

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 removal of the scenes prompted Raju to declare that the "issue has come to an end" and that the AIADMK would not hold anymore protests. Several AIADMK supporters say that some of the episodes criticize Tamil Nadu Ex-Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

"The new Sarkar won't be one that hurts sentiments". He said the party's opposition had nothing to do with criticism of the government. State ministers had called for the deletion of these scenes and threatened to take the legal route against the film, even as protests erupted in different parts of the state.

"Sarkar", released on November 6, has reportedly had a very good opening, ringing in cash at the box office.
