Followed by the members of “PMK” who demanded the theatres in Kadalur to ban “Etharkum Thuninthavan”, members of “Maveeran Manjal Padai” released a letter condemning the release of the Suriya starrer which was produced by Sun pictures and directed by Pandiraj.
In the letter which is being circulated in social media platforms, Kanalarasan, son of Kaduvetti Guru, demanded the ban of “Etharkum Thuninthavan” across the state. He said that Suriya demeaned the people of “Vanniyar” community through his “Jai bhim” film by naming one of the characters as “Gurumoorthy” whose name in real life is “Anthony Saamy”.
Kanalarasan said that the character of Gurumoorthy who is a police sub inspector in the film, was portrayed as a caste obsessed one. He said that the film shouldn’t be released in Tamil nadu until Suriya makes a public apology to the people of “Vanniyar” community.

Earlier, ila. Vijayavarman, state secretary, Students association of Pattali Makkal Katchi of Kadalur district insisted the theatre owners of Kadalur district not to screen Suriya’s movies until he asks public apology to the people of Vanniyar caste.
“Suriya acted as Lawyer Chandru which was the name of the real life character and rest of the characters in the film acted in the same name of real life characters. But they changed the name of a Dalit SI Whose name is Anthoni Samy and kept that character name as Gurumoorthy to portray him as someone who belongs to “Vanniyar community”. They showed him as a caste obsessed personality and a symbol which represents ” Vanniyar” community was placed in his house in the film and they intended to show the people of entire Vanniyar community as caste obsessed ones” read the letter of the PMK leader.
“For instigating enmity between Vanniyars and Irulars and for demeaning the people of Vanniyar community, Suriya’s films shouldn’t be screened in the theatres of Kadalur district until he makes a public apology” the letter further read ahead of “Etharkum Thuninthavan” release which is scheduled to take place on 10th of March.

As soon the “calendar” controversy erupted, makers of “Jai bhim” replaced it with a “Saraswathi Goddess” poster to avoid the controversy and also gave clarifications brushing off the same. Even in the pre release launch of “ET”, Suriya said that he is trying to come in terms with the people who caused problems after ” Jai bhim” release. He appreciated his fans for behaving mature when they happened to face problems due to the calendar controversy. However, the PMK cadre seems to have not pacified.
Produced by Sun pictures, “Etharkum Thuninthavan” stars Suriya, Priyanka Mohan, Sathyaraj, Saranya Ponvannan, Soori, Vinay, Divya Duraisamy and others. The film’s music was composed by D. Imman and Pandiraj of “Pasanga”, “Namma Veetu Pillai” fame directed the movie.
