Vijay Getting Trolled for Imitating Pawan Kalyan

Following the criticism hurled by Tamil Nadu's information and publicity minister Kadambar C Raju at actor Vijay's Diwali-release Sarkar, a complaint has now been lodged against director AR Murugadoss with the Chennai police.

"They are showing freebies given by the elected government being burnt".

The political dialogues in Vijay starrer A R Murugadoss directed "Sarkar" have now snowballed into huge political storm in Tamilnadu. "This amounts to indirectly inciting people, and comes under sedition", said Mr Shanmugam, comparing the screening of Sarkar to "terrorist activity".

Nevertheless, the movie - produced by media baron Kalanidhi Maran - swept the box office in the first two days of its launch. A minister has not only demanded the removal of controversial scenes from the film but went on to say that Vijay is acting like a Maoist. Made at a budget of Rs 110 crore, it has already crossed the Rs 100-crore mark in terms of ticket sales and other earnings.

The Minister took part in a party meeting at Chinthalakkarai to review the preparations for the impending bypoll to the Vilathikulam constituency. "Illegally opposing a duly certified film isn't new for this government". But the controversies and the trends it creating generating curiosity among common audience. "Instead, we gave permission for seven shows daily", he said.

According to anIndia Today report, a complaint was lodged by a person named Devarajan with the Commissioner of Police who stated that Murugadoss should be booked under acts of terrorism.

Meanwhile, the protest against the film has grown with AIADMKtearing banners of actor Vijay placed at theaters in Chennai, Madurai and Kovai.
