Chennai: Actor Vijay's much-awaited film Sarkar hit the silver screens on November 6, and has reportedly made over Rs 100 crore worldwide within two days. But the film has now mugged several controversies, which do not seem to end any time soon. 

A Tweet posted by Sarkar’s production house Sun pictures, said, "BREAKING NEWS: Police reach Director A.R.Murugadoss residence to arrest him." Following the tweet, the Sun pictures once again posted a tweet stating, "After enquiring about A.R.Murugadoss’ whereabouts police have left his residence since he was not there (SIC)."

Tension spread through the film fraternity as actor Vishal Tweeted saying, "Police in Dir Murugadoss s home???? For Wat?? Hoping and really hoping that nothin unforeseen happens. Once again. Censor has cleared the film and the content is watched by public. then why all this hue and cry (SIC)."

The cops in Chennai soon denied arrest and said they were on regular patrol. However, director AR Murugadoss Tweeted confirming police’s inquiry at his residence in Chennai. "Police had come to my house late tonight and banged the door several times. Since I was not there they left the premises. Right now I was told there is no police outside my house," said Murugadoss.

Earlier, the film had also faced plagiarism case from the maker of Sengol and piracy threat from a website named ‘Tamil Rockers’.

As this was not enough for the Sarkar team, Tamil Nadu minister Kadambur Raju warned against certain controversial scenes in the film and demanded that those scenes be chopped off from the film. Law minister CV Shanmugham threatened to file a case against them too.
