Released earlier this week on the festive occasion of Diwali, ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay’s Sarkar has been facing a major setback after a particular scene in the film irked the ruling state government. A Sun Pictures production with music by A. R. Rahman, this Keerthy Suresh and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar starrer has a scene where director A. R. Murugadoss is seen throwing away a mixer featuring one of the film’s antagonists and veteran actor Pala. Karuppiah’s image into the fire.

Thalapathy Vijay in Sarkar

With the said scene announced to be removed, a new and re-edited version of Sarkar will begin playing in theatres from today (09.11.2018). It must be noted the action political drama burst into the 100 crore club in a span of just two days while also making it the sixth film in Vijay’s career to earn such a glorious reputation. That said, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, who also plays a negative role in the film took to her Twitter page to lash out at the state government questioning them as to whether they are so weak to be threatened by a film.
