Controversial scenes from Darbar Removed after Sasikala's pressure
Superstar Rajinikanth's latest release Darbar, which released on January 9, is performing extremely well at the box office. The film, directed by AR Murugadoss, is a cop thriller where the police officer goes on a mission to put an end to the drug menace.
Much to the surprise of fans, Lyca Productions, who has bankrolled Darbar, released a statement saying that they are removing a couple of controversial scenes in the film.
In a statement, the production house said, "In Darbar, particular words and dialogues having references to prisoners or inmates going out of jail or prison during their imprisonment term was only included with an intention of providing entertainment to the audience and is not intended to refer to any specific individual or to offend anyone. However, since some of those particular words seemed to have hurt some people, we have hereby decided to remove the same from the film."
