Superstar Rajinikanth found himself in big trouble after his speech in the 50th year celebration of “Thuglak” magazine. After his remark on E.Ve.Ra Periyar during his speech in the event, protest against the actor emerged from dmk party. A police complaint has been filed against Rajinikanth by a political group as well.


At the 50th anniversary event of “Thuglak” magazine, Rajinikanth said that Periyar conducted a protest in 1971, at Salem with naked images of lord Sri Ramachandramoorthy and Sita. “In 1971, Periyar took out a rally against superstition in Salem. In the rally, naked images of Lord Sri Ramachandramoorthy and Sita with sandalwood garland. The incident was covered by no news outlet at that time” said Superstar Rajinikanth who lauded Thuglak which was founded by Cho Ramaswamy for publishing the news in the cover image of their magazine. He said that Thuglak severely criticized Periyar’s rally.


Rajinikanth said that the DMK government led by Kalaignar seized the copies of the magazine and prevented people from reading it as it gained them a bad name among public. “The DMK government which was ruling the state at that time seized the magazine’s copy. But Cho reprinted it and sold it in ‘black’ The magazine which was sold for 10 rupees bought by people for 50,60 rupees at that time” he said in his speech.
