When asked about AIADMK's opposition to "Sarkar", Mr Palaniswami said the issue has been settled. The article also defended the freebie scheme started by Jayalalithaa.

Rajinikanth had lashed out at the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) Friday for its protests against certain scenes in actor Vijay's Diwali release, "Sarkar", questioning the rationale behind protesting against a film certified by the censor board. "I strongly condemn these", he added. Its tweet read, "Police reach director AR Murugadoss residence to arrest him".

Tamil Nadu Law minister CV Shanmugam was quoted by Times Now, "Through this movie, an attempt is made to instigate violence in society".

Vijay's 2017 film "Mersal" too had ran into a controversy after BJP objected to some scenes critical of GST among others.
