Since the release of the film, many AIADMK ministers and party cadres have expressed their displeasure about certain scenes in the "Sarkar". Directed by A.R. Murugadoss, "Sarkar" movie revolved around contemporary political system. Madurai, Coimbatore, and Trichy witnessed sporadic protests in several theatre complexes which led to exhibitors cancelling the matinee shows of the film in specific areas. Produced under the Sun Pictures banner with music by A. R. Rahman, the film has now gotten embroiled in a political controversy post its release with the state's ruling government.

If the grapevine is anything to go by, "Sarkar" team has agreed to mute scenes that have been termed controversial. "They are now awaiting clearance from the censor board, and the updated content is most likely to play in theaters from tomorrow's (9 November) noon show".

Rajinikanth lashed out against these acts. He said, "It isn't new for this Government to act and pressurise against a film like Sarkar, that has completed its censor formalities properly. The righteous people will win".

A while ago Murugadoss tweeted, 'Police had come to my house late tonight and banged the door several times.Since I was not there they left the premises.

"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.
