Suriya’s Singam 2 and Mani Ratnam’s Kadal in trouble for hurting religious sentiments

It seems films are becoming easy targets these days. Close on the heels of Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam facing hurdles, two more movies are in a similar situation

While Mani Ratnam’s Kadal, starring Gautham Karthik and Thulasi Nair, which hit the screens Friday last, has earned the wrath of a Christian group, superstar Suriya’s upcoming film Singam 2 now faces opposition from a Muslim association.

The Indian Christian Democratic Party has filed a complaint with Chennai city Police Commissioner S George, alleging that Kadal has objectionable scenes referring to Christians.

Meanwhile, a Muslim organisation has alleged that Muslims are being shown in a bad light in Singam 2, and urged the film’s director Hari to remove those scenes.
