It's well known that Karthi's next with Remo director Bakkiyaraj Kannan has been titled as Sultan. Rashmika Mandanna of Dear Comrade and Geetha Govindam plays the romantic interest of Karthi in the film. Recently a group protested against team Sultan as they think that the film projects Tipu Sultan in a bad light. The slogans raised by the group resulted in a fight between two other gangs near the shooting spot in Dindigul.
Now, Dream Warrior Pictures, producers of Sultan have issued a press statement saying that the film is not about the life story of Tipu Sultan so the protests organized by a few are merely for the self-publicity.
Dream Warrior Pictures also condemned protestors who are trying to enter into the creative freedom space of filmmakers and they should stop painting films with religious shades which will eventually ruin the image of the creators and celebrated icons whom they are protesting for.
