'Sarkar' riles sarkar: Tamil Nadu ministers threaten 'intervention'

Vijay Getting Trolled for Imitating Pawan Kalyan

Experts had rightly predicted that Sarkar will shatter multiple records on its way right from day 1 and may even beat the record set by magnum opus Baahubali.

In the state, too, Sarkar broke records by reaching the spot that was previously dominated by SS Rajamouli's Baahubali - The Conclusion. This is the first time a Vijay film has reached the 100 crore box office spot in just two days.

Sarkar, which released to coincide with Deepavali on November 6, a Tuesday, has been produced by Sun Pictures.

The film touched upon various issues persistent in the state.

Sarkar went on to script a record in Kerala with its big release as well.


The film drew massive crowds across the globe.

Released in over 3400 screens across the world, the film was directed by AR Murugadoss.

It must be noted that this also makes it the sixth occasion a Vijay film has reached those figures after his previous smash hit films namely Thuppakki, Kaththi, Theri, Bairavaa and last year's Mersal. The most remarkable one is that it has broken the record of Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju that had the highest opening day collection of 2018 so far. Reports suggest that Sarkar went on to fetch approximately 2.37 Crores on it opening day from Chennai region alone.

Sarkar has had its fair share of controversy both before and after its release.

Sarkar had previously run into trouble with writer Varun Rajendran who alleged that the story of the film was copied from his work Sengol. Tamil Nadu information minister and AIADMK MLA Kadambur Raju has taken offense and demanded some scenes be cropped.
