A group of Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) activists, who tried to protest in front of Gautham Menon’s residence, were arrested yesterday. The Chennai cops arrested a 15-member-group, who were marching towards the director’s house.
HMK has objected a few scenes of the director’s latest movie Nadunissi Naaygal. They have demanded the director to delete the scenes, which showed mother-son relationship in a bad taste. A mentally ill person, who tries to misbehave with his mother is an insult to the Hindu culture, said HMK’s secretary. The director has hurt the sentiments of Hindus, he added.
Meanwhile, Gautham Menon said that he has not insulted any culture. He has made the film on facts and the truth. The director added that it is based on real-life story. However, Gautham said that they have every right to protest but he will not accept their view.
