The new controversy that Vikram's latest release has courted is refusing to die down. Why did the LGBT community find I objectionable? Read on to find out!
Now a days, films and controversies go hand in hand. While controversies are good for promotions of a film, it often proves to be a headache foe the makers. Ace director Shankar has got himself embroiled into a raging controversy this time with his latest release I. The film seems to have irked the transgender community big time, as they now demand an public apology from director Shankar and actor Vikram, for portraying the community in bad light.
According to the transgenders, there are quite a few objectionable scenes in the film. A group of transgenders is protesting outside director Shankar's residence, which has forced the filmmaker for seeking police protection. One of the protestors, Sasha said," We filed a petition at the censor board office requesting them to instruct the makers to remove scenes that show us in bad light. They include a scene where a transgender stylist's room number is shown as nine, one in which the characters of Vikram and Santhanam sing the Oororam Puliyamaram song and another where the stylist is shown rubbing her hand all over the hero's chest."
" What we also demand is a public apology from director Shankar, actors Vikram and Santhanam. If not, we will file a petition at the commissioner's office. Later, if needed, we will also file a case and seek legal help" added an visibly agitated Sasha. While it seems unlikely that Shankar will remove those objectionable scenes as they are key to the story, it would be interesting to see what director Shankar or Vikram have to say about this issue. Do we see a public apology on the cards? Only time will tell.
