He "strongly condemned" the demands for deletion of scenes.

That said, A. R. Murugadoss himself took to his Twitter page to clear the air on the confusion that prevailed last night stating the police had banged the door of his house several times before leaving the premises after realizing he wasn't there. He also told, it is not appropriate to remove scenes from a movie that is already censored.

Though Vijay and AR Murugadoss Sarkar got below average talk, somehow the scenes about Section 49P and other scenes where the hero questions the ruling governments have struck a chord with the audiences. Ever since the movie released, party cadres have been protesting outside various theatres in Tamil Nadu and indulged in damaging the banners of the film and cut-outs of Vijay.

Richard Blumenthal: Trump firing Sessions is a 'break the glass moment'
Mueller's team also has been pressing for an interview with Trump. "He has no reason to recuse himself", Malcolm told VOA. He could also refuse to sign off on a subpoena of Trump if the president refuses to voluntarily speak to investigators.

Law Minister C Ve Shanmugham said certain scenes amounted to inciting violence and warned of action. "I strongly- condemn this act", the superstar tweeted in Tamil.

Meanwhile, while talking to a TV channel, Kamal Hassan also condemned interference in content of the film after censor certification. A rough translation of his tweet says: "Employing pressure tactics through its tyrannical power to sabotage a duly certified film like Sarkar is not new to this government". A government that does not have the guts to face a criticism can go off the tangent.

The AIADMK was up in arms against "Sarkar" with senior AIADMK ministers demanding deletion of the contentious scenes, besides threatening to initiate legal action if the film crew failed to comply. "Commercialised politicians will soon be vanished and the good people would win".
