Ever since the release of 'Sarkar', many AIADMK ministers and party cadres expressed their displeasure over certain scenes in the film.

Several party cadres on Wednesday protested outside various theatres in Tamil Nadu and indulged in damaging the banners of the film and cut-outs of Vijay.

They also demanded certain scenes to be removed from the political thriller. If rumours are anything to go by, the makers have agreed to mute scenes that have been termed controversial. However, we are yet to hear an official announcement from Sun Pictures if they are muting scenes.

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.
