Threat to Star Hero, Police protection given!

Seems like the controversies sparked by Vijay's Tupaki will not end anytime soon. First it was the title issue, then the release problems and now the threat from Muslim organizations.

Few Muslim organizations have already complained against the movie demanding to chop off the controversial scenes which were against their community. As a precautionary measure, Police protection has been given to both Vijay's house and his father's house.

Tupaki is a story of a Army officer who declares war on the Sleeper-Cells operated by a terrorist organization. The individual members of the sleeper cell willn't be aware of each other, they perform their day-to-day duties as any other normal person while living undercover, but steps into action immediately after receiving order from their leader to either set up bombs at public places/become suicide bomber.

Despite all these controversies, the openings for Tupaki are fantabulous and the trade analysts have already declared it as a blockbuster. This action entertainer is all set to become the biggest hit in Vijay's career.
