While fans have been expressing their disappointment, legendary filmmaker Bharathiraja has now issued a statement, where he has demanded the video streaming platform Amazon Prime to stop streaming the series. He alleged that the season portrays the Eelam Tamil people in a bad light and stated that failing to stop streaming the season will result in Tamil people boycotting the OTT platform. Starring Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani and Samantha Akkineni in the lead roles, the series was directed by Raj and DK.
A few weeks back, the Tamil Nadu government had placed a request to the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to either stop or ban the release of the second season. It was alleged in the request that the series has depicted the Tamil Eelam in a negative light. In a letter to I&B minister Prakash Javadekar, Tamil Nadu IT Minister T Mano Thangaraj wrote that the trailer presented Tamilians in a “highly objectionable manner”. Before this, Bharathiraja raised his voice against the biopic of Srilankan cricketer Muttiah Muralidharan, and eventually, it was called off.
