Dhanush has apologised for hurting the sentiments of a section of society through some scenes in his just released movie ‘Uthama Puthiran‘.

Released on the eve of Deepavali, Dhanush-Genelia starred Uthama Puthiran which is running successfully in theatres, has been banned in the cities of Coimbatore and Salem due to the dialogues which criticizes a  the high populated ‘Goundar ‘community who live in and around Coimbatore.

The film has a scene where Dhanush and Vivek pass critical remarks on ‘Goundar’ community, that went on to create negative waves among the community masses, thereby resulting in the ban of the movie. A group of people protested in front of a theatre in Coimbatore last Tuesday complaining that the movie has portrayed them in bad taste. Also agitation was taken on serious note  by Kongu Velalar Munnetra Sangam in the mentioned cities.

And today a  press meet was conducted  in Chennai to sort out the issue which was attended by Dhanush and Uthama Puthiran director Mithran Jawahar and producer Mohan Appa Rao.

At the press meet Dhanush has requested not to stop the screening of Uthama Puthiran as it might result in a heavy loss for the producers. Also the actor stressed  immediate action has been taken – the two dialogues pertaining to the community have been muted and some scenes showing them in poor taste have also been removed.

“Of the 120 theatres in Tamil Nadu, the changes are effective wherever the cube technology is being used. Forty screens using UFO technology will need two days time to make the changes according to the list. We respect their feelings. The film aims at only showing family relationships and values. The movie is not meant to hurt anyone,” said Dhanush.

He has taken the responsibility to address the concerns of Goundar community, but at the same time requested them not to disrupt the shows.

“I request people not to stop any show in protest as we are doing the needful. Crores (of rupees) have been invested in the film so this is my humble request”, said Dhanush.

    anyone noticed? Dhanush no where mentioned sorry in the apology. He just said “varutham therivichikurom”. These words are used only when someone needs to show the sympathy. It should not be used for apology.

    yeah..well said gautham..eventhough i am from other community i have always had a surprise and fascination towards this community..the reason is that most of the brave womens are from your community..and where most of them are highly educated esp as doctors.. i have always been surprised to see how they could just manage being in a village and at the same time knowing the complete city life..at the present age there is nothing like wat has been portrayed in the movie..

  7. vasin

    wat has dhanush told here?? all the day to day life and real life incidents have been moulded as the movie..in that case they have no rights to just say things in such a way..when such things are bet 2 people it is fine..but when its displayed in cinema it comes to the view of whole public and obviously ppl wil reach to it..

  8. gautham
