Karnan has found itself in yet another controversy. The Dhanush starrer action-drama film directed by Mari Selvaraj has come under the radar of some section of people. They have called out the makers for making a factual error in the film. Karnan is said to be inspired/ based on the Kodiyankulam caste riots that took place in 1995. However, in Karnan, it is shown that the riots took place in 1997. This has led to a massive outcry in the state now. As the elections are coming up, a small factual error has been turned into a huge blunder. For those not in the know, Udhayanidhi Stalin‘s grandfather, M. Karunanidhi former Chief Minister of the state was elected as the chief minister (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam political party) in 1996. And the riots had taken place a year ago when late J Jayalalithaa’s AIADMK was in power.
Now, the DMK supporters along with Udhayanidhi Stalin have raised the concern with the makers of Karnan. And the makers have heard their pleas and have assured to get the factual error rectified in the next few days. While Udhayanidhi Stalin, heaped praises on Dhanush and the cast and crew of the film, he pointed out the error in the tweet and also shared Mari Selvaraj’s reaction to the same. His tweet read, “The film is based on the Kodiyankulam caste riots of 1995 when the AIADMK was in power, but it is shown as taking place in 1997 in the film. DMK was in power in 1997 and I have pointed this out to the producers and the director. They have assured me that this error will be corrected in a couple of days.” Check it out below:
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.
