Chennai: Superstar Rajinikanth on Friday tweeted in support of actor Vijay's latest Tamil film "Sarkar". Popular distributor Tiruppur Subramaniam confirmed saying, "The team has given their consent to remove a few scenes and mute the controversial dialogues which have caused distress to ADMK supporters".

AR Murugadoss directed "Sarkar", a political thriller, hit the screens on Tuesday.

Just how the Kollywood film fraternity had stood together in support of the makers of Mersal previous year, high-profile stars from the Tamil film industry such as Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Vishal also batted for Sarkar and strongly condemned the demands of the party supporters, some of whom even engaged in violence.

The AIADMK was up in arms against "Sarkar" with senior AIADMK ministers demanding deletion of the contentious scenes, besides threatening to initiate legal action if the film crew failed to comply. Ever since the movie released, party cadres have been protesting outside various theatres in Tamil Nadu and indulged in damaging the banners of the film and cut-outs of Vijay.

Rajinikanth "strongly condemned" the demands for deletion of scenes.

"The Censor board is controlled by Central Government, we have no say in it, but if the producers remove those scenes then well and good, if they don't then we will decide our next course of action", he added.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, "The hugely awaited #Tamil biggie #Sarkar, which opened today, has got fantastic showcasing outside Tamil Nadu as well..." A government that does not have the guts to face a criticism can go off the tangent. "I strong condemn this act".

Despite opening to mixed reviews and getting embroiled in controversies, "Sarkar" managed to gross over Rs 100 crore in just two days at the box-office.
