Vijay starrer 'Sarkar' film has been making a lot of noise lately be it for the fact of its much-awaited release or the controversies surrounding it. Veteran actor Kamal Haasan, who has been quite vocal in the past regarding issues plaguing the film industry, shared his piece of mind recently.
As the film released in theatres this Diwali with much aplomb, reports suggest Tamil Nadu government warned action on the film that is politically loaded. The Information and Publicity Minister of Tamil Nadu along with the Law Minister of Tamil Nadu have warned action against the screening of the film that is currently running to packed screens across theatres in the state. This happened a day after the release of the AR Murugadoss directorial. Now Kamal Haasan has taken to his Twitter handle siding with the makers of 'Sarkar'. In a heartfelt tweet, he said that this is an attempt to manipulate. This isn't the first time this has happened. Read his tweet below:
According to popular reports, speaking at a press conference on November 7, Minister Kadambur Raju said, "People will not accept these political motives."
Reports also suggest that the AIADMK leaders had read reviews of the film that had called the film Vijay's political launch pad. Meanwhile, 'Sarkar' was in news to be screened for 24 hours on Diwali in a theatre in Kerala named Kartika. 'Thalapathy' Vijay fans reportedly created a record by unveiling a grand cutout of the 'Sarkar' actor during the release of the film. The cut-out, featuring his look from 'Sarkar', measured 175 feet and is said to be the tallest for an Indian actor in the country. Take a look at it below:
