Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu which hit the screens recently is amidst a huge controversy for its portrayal of the people of the gay community. A renowned director had criticised the movie publicly. The director Santhosh P Jayakumar said, "The director had shown glamour scenes way back in 1980 in his films. If he himself is against this, then I can't say anything." Santhosh has revealed about crucial changes in part 2. "Gautham Karthik won't be a part of the sequel of IAMK. In the first part, I would have concluded the movie saying I will be back with a new set of virgin boys in IAMK 2. Gautham Karthik loses his virginity in the first part, so he won't be there in the next," he said.
