The issue over actor Vijay's Tamil film "Sarkar" blew over Friday with its producers voluntarily cutting scenes, including an apparent reference to late chief minister J Jayalalithaa and criticism of welfare schemes initiated by her, and the AIADMK government welcoming it.
In the petition filed, Murugadoss stated that despite the backlash the film has been receiving from members of the AIADMK, his intention was never to hurt anyone.

"While we don't know how many scenes have been deleted, we can say for sure that the objectionable scene on mixer and grinder being burnt has been removed", they said.
Raju said "AIADMK workers, ranging from supporters to Chief Minister (K Palaniswami)", treat Jayalalithaa as "God".
"We have nothing to do with the film or Vijay", he said, even as he described the star as a 'dear friend'. "I condemn this act".
