Tamil Nadu Law minister C.V. Shanmugam condemned the Vijay-starrer for allegedly attempting to instigate violence in society and also said that it is not less than a terrorist instigating people for violence.

Justice G K Ilanthiraiyan passed the interim order on the anticipatory bail application moved by Murugadoss apprehending arrest for alleged offences under sections 124A (sedition) and 505 (Statements conducing to public mischief) of the IPC.

In his petition, Murugadoss said he did not make the movie with an intention to hurt anyone. Since I was not there they left the premises.

The film has been facing stiff opposition from AIADMK workers all over the state.

Sarkar, which released on November 7, has scenes that criticise the previous Tamil Nadu government led by the late J Jayalalithaa.

Amid the growing outrage among the party supporters against the film and more threats coming in on theater owners each day, the makers of Sarkar reportedly agreed to mute or remove few controversial scenes.

In what could be considered as a shot in the arm for the Sarkar team, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth has come in support of Sarkar, while slamming the unlawful activity carried out by politicians from the ruling AIADMK against the Tamil flick.

His tweet reads, "The censor board, after censoring the film and certifying it, to protest for the removal of certain scenes from the movie, to stop from the film from being screened and destroying the film banner, is against the law".
