Producer Kalaipuli Thanu and director AR Murgadoss have agreed to remove certain scenes in Thuppakki “which hurt the sensitivity of the Muslim community”.
Many Muslim organisations have been agitating for the removal of the scenes. Kalaipuli Thanu said: “We did not want to hurt anyone’s sentiment. We regret if it had hurt the Muslim community and we are removing the objectionable scenes at the earliest.”
Vijay’s father and Tamil Film Producers Council president SA Chandrasekhar said : “ Vijay would never act in a film which would offend anyone’s feelings. I promise Vijay would act as a Muslim character in one of his future films.”
The Muslim organisations have also agreed to give up their agitation as the issue has been sorted out amicably. Meanwhile, Thuppakki continues to rock the box-office.
