His remarks came even as AIADMK supporters protested outside theatres in Madurai, Coimbatore and in Chennai which screened the movie.
Speaking to reporters, Shanmugam -- without naming anyone -- said the movie producer, hero and the theratre owners screening 'Sarkar, would face legal action.
According to Shanmugam, the actor is instigating violence against the government "under the guise of the movie."
While the DMK government headed by M. Karunanidhi in Tamil Nadu gave TV sets free to the poor, the AIADMK headed by J. Jayalalithaa went further and gave fans, mixer-grinder and suchlike gratis to the poor.
Shanmugam said he suspects if the actor has links with overseas organisations wanting to throw out a duly elected government in the state.
Ramadoss said the movie has scenes in which Vijay was shown smoking.
He said while Vijay in the movie fights against bogus voting, "should he not have the social responsibility of not keeping smoking scenes in the movie?"
Ramdoss said Vijay should have propagated the anti-smoking message.
