Chennai: Filmmaker AR Murugadoss moved the Madras High Court seeking anticipatory bail fearing arrest as there is an anti-national case lodged with the police and also accusations that he is misleading the people in the movie ‘Sarkar’.
The case came up for hearing this afternoon and the judges have ordered the police to file their cases and not to arrest the filmmaker till November 27 when the next hearing has been adjourned to.
Meanwhile, Minister Kandambur Raju of Kovilpatti constituency has announced that since the controversial scenes have been removed from the movie and the film has been censored the problem is over from the AIADMK side.
A complaint was earlier filed against the director with the Chennai police by a person named Devarajan. However, police sources maintained that no FIR had been registered against Murugadoss, as per a report by The News Minute.
On Thursday, several members of the AIADMK staged a protest in front of theaters screening Sarkar and tore down banners of the film. They demanded that the scenes which allegedly portray the party and former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in a bad light be snipped.
