Vijay-starrer ‘Sarkar led to a political storm in Tamil Nadu. AIADMK Ministers had warned of appropriate action against the Makers had if objectionable scenes aren’t removed from the movie. They complained the negative character essayed by Varalakshmi Sarathkumar is loosely based on Jayalalithaa.
Sun Pictures which bankrolled the project tweeted that Chennai Police reached the residence of AR Murugadoss to arrest him – ‘BREAKING NEWS : Police reach Director A.R.Murugadoss residence to arrest him. After enquiring about A.R.Murugadoss whereabouts police have left his residence since he was not there’.
As the news spread like wildfire, Several Celebrities had come in support of the Ace Filmmaker describing it as an attack on freedom of speech. Within short time, News Channels started reporting that reports in circulation are false.
At midnight, AR Murugadoss himself confirmed Chennai Police reaching his house to take him into custody. ‘Police had come to my house late tonight and banged the door several times. Since I was not there they left the premises. Right now I was told there is no police outside my house,’ he tweeted.
People are in a confusion over what’s happening in Chennai and who’s version they should be trusting…whether the makers of ‘Sarkar’ or Media? Nobody knows what happens next?
