Pa Ranjith Statement on Sarkar Controversy

Vijay's latest film Sarkar hit the screens on Diwali day, that is November 6. The movie had Keerthy Suresh as the female lead while Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Pala Karuppiah and Radha Ravi had important supporting roles.

Directed by AR Murugadoss, and bankrolled by Sun Pictures, Sarkar had strong political scenes and dialogues, some of them reflecting the political nature of the country at present. Following that, the cadres of a specific party in Tamil Nadu went on to tear banners of the film in theatres, and asked for specific scenes to be cut out.

This has resulted in wide protests across the city. The police have also been involved and they were spotted at AR Murugadoss' house yesterday. Talking about this issue, director Pa Ranjith, who directed films like Kaala, Kabali, Madras, etc., 

"#சர்கார் விமர்சனத்தை எதிர்க்க அரசதிகாரத்தையும், வன்முறையையும் கையாளுபவர்களுக்கு தெரிந்தே இருக்கிறது, இந்த நாட்டில் என்றோ “ஜனநாயகம்” அழிந்து/இழந்து போய்விட்டது என்று!!!"
