Sarkar collects Rs 75 Cr on its opening day

'Sarkar, ' produced by Sun Pictures, stars Vijay and Keerthi Suresh in key roles, and was released on November 6.

The AIADMK's objection was to the scene that showed the actor throwing out mixie and grinder - given free by the government to the poor - into the fire. It also said that no viewer was offended by what they saw.

After the party members staged protests in various parts of Tamil Nadu, the makers gave in to the political pressure and removed all controversial references from the film.

"The protests (against the film) will not continue", he told reporters here. Several AIADMK supporters say that some of the episodes criticize Tamil Nadu Ex-Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

"We have chose to delete the scenes that AIADMK workers found to be offensive", said Shanmugasundaram, owner of Udhayam Theatres in Chennai.

While rightly conceding that there was no relationship between the state government and the Central Board of Film Certification, Raju, however, said, "But still, it has come to our attention".

A name said to refer to Jayalalithaa was used for a negative character and therefore the opposition to it was "wholehearted" from the party workers, he said.

Vijay's Deepavali release, Sarkar, directed by AR Murugadoss, faced a host of issues in the month leading up to its release on Tuesday.

While a theatre owners" body announced that the edited version would be screened from Friday afternoon, sources in the "Sarkar' crew said a "compromise" has been reached.

Earlier in the day, Tamil "Superstar" Rajinikanth threw his weight behind Vijay, questioning the AIADMK's rationale in protesting against a film certified by the censor board.
