Vijay’s Sarkar has finally given up under the immense pressure from the ruling AIADMK and its makers have agreed to edit parts of the movie seen critical of the ruling party, and former chief minister J Jayalalithaa who died in 2016. According to reports, the makers have agreed to make 2 changes in the movie which hit the screens on November 6.
