The makers of Thuppakki have bowed down to the demands of Muslim groups after it raised objection over several scenes in the recently released film. The movie bosses have apologised and have agreed to delete those scenes, which show the Islamic religion in bad taste.
The Federation of Muslim Organisations and Political Parties and AR Murugadoss had a meeting on Wednesday and addressed the media after the three-hour discussion over the issue. AR Murugadoss said that their intention is not to hurt anyone's sentiment. Muslims are our brothers and the makers have agreed to delete the scenes that hurt the Muslims sentiments.
SA Chandrashekar also said that he wants his son Vijay to be considered as the son of every mother, and they respect all religions. He went on to say that the actor would be doing the role of a Muslim in his next movie. "I wish to state that Vijay will play a Muslim in his next film," he said.
The Federation of Muslim Organisations thanked the makers of Thuppakki and requested all the filmmakers and actors not to show their community in bad taste.
On Wednesday (November 14), the Islamic organisation protested against the film and alleged that Thuppakki portrays Muslims as terrorists and traitors. The makers of the film should seek an apology and remove those scenes that hurt the feelings of the Muslims. It also adds that if they fail to chop those scenes, they would held a dharna in front of Vijay's house.
