Director Santhosh Sivan’s Inam – a movie which is set in the backdrop of Sri Lankan Civil war released on Friday (March 28) in Tamil Nadu. Few days back, some small Tamil groups/parties opposed the movie saying the movie was against Sri Lankan Tamils.
Tamil Film Directors Union saw the movie and in an emergency press conference last evening, they announced their support for the movie.
But still there were some issues in few theatres across Tamil Nadu which refused to screen the movie while Chennai city multiplexes got police protection.
Given this background, last evening Inam’s producer Thirrupathi Brothers issued a press release saying they showed the movie to Directors Tamil Film Director’s Union and few Tamil groups. After that, based on their suggestion, they removed four scenes and muted a dilouge from the movie.
