"We have nothing to do with the film or Vijay", Raju said describing the star as a "dear friend". He took it on his official Twitter handle and wrote that "When the censor board has cleared the film, holding protests and demanding for removal scenes is against the law".

According to the reports, Sarkar is the sixth film of Vijay to have crossed the 100-Crore mark at the worldwide box office. But, the write-up counter questioned if Rajinikanth will consume a certified food packet in which he finds a lizard because of the certifications on the product.

Meanwhile, Sun Pictures, the producer of the film, put out a press release stating why they deleted the objectionable scenes.

Produced by Sun Pictures, the film stars Vijay and Keerthi Suresh in key roles with Oscar victor A R Rahman scoring the music.

There is a scene in the film that shows burning of freebies, like mixies, grinders and fans, which were distributed by political party.

DeSantis holds a lead of 38,613 votes out of more than 8.2 million ballots counted - a margin of 0.47 percentage points. Scott's thin lead over Nelson has narrowed in the vote-counting in the days since he declared victory on Tuesday night.

Strongly defending the freebies, the party mouthpiece equated it to the quota system.

Another brand Amma scheme named after Jayalalithaa, these canteens serve delicacies like idli and chapati, besides rice varieties, at heavily subsidised rates and are popular among the masses.

The AIADMK took strong exception to scenes showing mixer-grinder and fans being burnt, seen as an obvious affront to its flagship scheme of providing these goods free of cost to people, fulfilling an electoral promise made by Jayalalithaa in 2011.

It lashed out at the film crew for naming a character apparently referring to Jayalalithaa.
