Vijay starrer 'Sarkar' has been one of the biggest and most successful releases this week. While it has become a people's favorite, it looks like the film has drawn the ire of the Tamilnadu government. A lot of drama has been unfolding lately as AIADMK officials demanded that some scenes are removed from the film and have taken a really hardline stance towards the issue. Now, the makers of the film have found support in one of the most influential figures in Tamil cinema, Rajinikanth. The Superstar took to Twitter to condemn the acts of the current regime and argued that it is not fair to fight for cuts after the film has passed CBFC certification.
