Vikram has signed a historical venture called Karikalan which we already reported long back. Now, sources say that the film will attract a lot of controversies. It may not go too well with the Hindutvas, RSS, Hindu Munnanis and Hindu Makkal Katchis.
What’s there in the film that will kick up controversies? Sources reveal that a few scenes in the film depict a Chola King who treats his people as slaves. His aspirations in building a temple i.e. The Thanjai Periya kovil or the Thanjavur Big Temple led him to treat his people as slaves.
They say that the temple is a little infamous for the bad luck it brings to those who visit. Karikalan will reveal that Rajaraja Cholan’s enslaving people has led to their cursing him and the temple that still adds to the bad luck the temple brings. RSS and Hindu Organizations are expected to be fueled by this film.
