Tamil Nadu Minister calls film Sarkar 'no less than a terrorist'
Sparking a row, Tamil Nadu law minister CV Shanmugam on Thursday has drawn a comparison between south Indian actor Vijay's film SARKAR and Terrorism, media reports said.
Shanmugam condemned the Tamil film saying it is an attempt to instigate violence in the society.
He has been quoted by NDTV as saying, "Through this movie, an attempt has been made to instigate violence in society. It is not less than a terrorist instigating people for violence."
Saying that the film is an attempt to pull down the AIADMK-led state government, Shanmugam has also threatened to take action against Vijay and the entire team.
A day ago, Kadambur C Raju, another state minister, threatened to take action if objectionable scenes are not removed.
Raju also said he will consult Chief Minister E Palaniswamy about taking an action.
Meanwhile, A.R. Murugadoss directorial Vijay, which released on Nov 7, has already collected Rs. 100 crore at the Indian box office.
This is not the first time Vijay's film has been embroiled into a controversy. In 2017, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had objected Mersal for promoting wrong conceptions about several central government schemes.
