After the protest of ADMK cadres, team Sarkar has agreed to remove the controversial scene in the film.

Vijay's Sarkar has finally given up under the enormous pressure from the ruling AIADMK and its makers have agreed to edit parts of the movie seen critical of the ruling party, and former chief minister J Jayalalithaa who died in 2016.

"Sarkar" controversies are still continuing and now it has become Vijay fans vs AIADMK leaders in Tamil Nadu. Yesterday, ADMK loyalists vandalized the premises of few theaters screening Sarkar in the state and after the incident, night shows were canceled.

"Top star, tell us frankly".

The chief minister also justified the AIADMK workers who had allegedly vandalised Sarkar posters. He too tweeted that a government that can't accept criticism can go off the tangent.

These sensors measure the angle of attack of planes when climbing to ensure that they do not attempt to fly too steeply and stall. Air Force said moisture in sensors caused the 2008 crash of a B-2 stealth bomber on Guam; both pilots ejected safely.

"In future, filmmakers should avoid including scenes that would hurt the sentiments, especially relating to Amma's (Jayalalithaa's) sacrifices and hardwork", he said.

Rajini said that the movie was passed by the Censor Board and hence, the political party has no right to protest and demand removal of the scenes.

Law Minister C Ve Shanmugham said certain scenes amounted to inciting violence and warned of action.

The AIADMK took strong exception to scenes showing mixer-grinder and fans being burnt, seen as an obvious affront to its flagship scheme of providing these goods free of cost to people, fulfilling an electoral promise made by Jayalalithaa in 2011. It is directed by AR Murugadoss and has music by Oscar victor AR Rahman.
