Muslim outfits thank Jaya for removal of objectionable scenes in movie
Members of various Muslim outfits today called on Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and thanked her for ensuring removal of a few scenes in the recent Tamil movie 'Thuppakki' that hurt their religious sentiments.
An official release here said the state government was striving hard to promote secularism and ensure welfare of the minorities.
Recently, a few Muslim organisations in the city said some scenes in the film, starring actor Vijay, hurt their sentiments and demanded that they should be removed.
Acting swiftly, the Chief Minister directed the Home Secretary to instruct film director A R Murugadoss, Vijay's father S A Chandrasekhar and producer Kalaipuli S Dhanu to remove the objectionable scenes from the film and also advised them to hold discussions with the members of the Muslim outfits.
Following discussions, the film crew decided to remove the scenes.
After the film crew announced that objectionable scenes were deleted, the Muslim organisations met the Chief Minister at the state Secretariat and thanked her for its gesture.
