He took it on his official Twitter handle and wrote that "When the censor board has cleared the film, holding protests and demanding for removal scenes is against the law".

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. They also said that the objectionable content was already censored by the makers.

'Sarkar, ' produced by Sun Pictures, stars Vijay and Keerthi Suresh in key roles, and was released on November 6. A scene where a mixer grinder was being burnt has been deleted. Also a woman character's name, apparently referring to the late AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, was muted after backlash from the ruling party workers. Its tweet read, "Police reach director AR Murugadoss residence to arrest him". Following the controversy over Sarkar film, AR Murugadoss had applied for anticipatory bail at Madras High Court.
