There was a call to ban 7aum Arivu in Sri Lanka because the film had some dialogues on the lack of Tamil liberation movement. This created uproar in Sri Lanka and there was call to ban the film.
Following this opposition, the producer of 7aum Arivu, Udhayanidhi Stalin, decided to delete the offending scenes so that it would not hurt the film’s success in that country. The protestors are now contended that the dialogues have been removed and have allowed the film to be screened.
7aum Arivu stars Suriya and Shruti Haasan in the lead. AR Murugadoss has directed this film which has music by Harris Jayraj.
