In the film, Superstar Rajinikanth plays the role of Adhithya Arunachalam Commissioner of Mumbai city police. When he successfully arrests a drug lord and lodges him in jail, the accused manages to masquerade and roams in foreign country. While he discusses about the issue to his colleagues, one of a character would mention that the similar incident is taking place in south too. In another scene, when Rajinikanth questions about the prisoners using cell phones in jail, an officer would reply by saying that one can go shopping inside the jail if they have money.
These dialogues are clearly takes sly dig at Sasikala who is an aide to late chief minister J. Jayalalitha. She currently serving 4 years of jail term for a disproportionate assets case. On several occasions, CCTV video footages of Sasikala and her relative Ilavarasi flouting prison rules were released. One of a video clip showed them carrying a bag and roaming out of female barrack. These videos clips might have triggered the makers to keep such dialogues and scenes which is not going to take place in the film hereafter.
Followed by these, Sasikala’s advocate Raja Senthoora Rajan has made a threat to sue director Murugadoss, Rajinikanth and minister Jayakumar for addressing about the scene in his recent speech. He further justified that Sasikala never went shopping. Phone call audio of the same was released in Jaya Plus channel.
