Actor Politician Udhayanidhi Stalin after heaping praise on the film’s lead actor, producer, and director, has pointed out a factual error in the film. After this, the makers of the film have promised to correct it in two days. Read on to know what exactly is the error.
Udhayanidhi Stalin, who is the Youth Wing Secretary of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam party has pointed out that in the film it is shown that the Kodiyankulam riots took place in 1997 when the DMK party was in the ruling. However, in reality, the riots took place in 1995 when the AIADMK was in power.
Check out Udhayanidhi Stalin’s tweet:
1995 அதிமுக ஆட்சியில் நடந்த கொடியன்குளம் கலவரத்தை மையமாக வைத்து எடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ள இப்படத்தில் அச்சம்பவம் 1997ல் கழக ஆட்சியில் நடந்ததாக காட்டப்பட்டுள்ளது. இதனை தயாரிப்பாளர், இயக்குநரிடம் சுட்டிக்காட்டினேன். அந்தத் தவறை இரு தினங்களில் சரிசெய்துவிடுகிறோம்’ என உறுதியளித்தனர். நன்றி.
