The PIL is only the most recent hurdle for a film which revisits the 1984 riots and its aftermath in a commercial release.

 The hilarious 'ABVP, why so creepy' song, needs to be edited to include AIDMK, it appears. The party’s Health Minister C Vijayabaskar upped the creepy quotient when he persisted in responding to a woman journalist's questions about a late night meeting of party MLAs with compliments on her spectacles and when that didn't stop her questions, said "you are so beautiful".
