A source close to director AR Murugadoss was quoted saying by The Indian Express that the movie has surpassed the day 1 collection of ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ in Tamil Nadu. “Sarkar surpassed the day one collection of Baahubali 2 in the state. And we’re expecting Sarkar to be the highest Tamil grosser,” he said.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, Sarkar stars Vijay in the lead role and also features Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Yogi Babu and Radha Ravi among others. This is the third time when Murugadoss and Vijay have come together for a project.

The film has landed in a major controversy with the Tamil Nadu government saying Sarkar promotes violence. “Through this movie an attempt is made to instigate violence in society. It’s not less than a terrorist instigating people for violence. It attempts to pull down a democratically elected govt. We’ll take action against the actor&the team,” CV Shanmugam, Tamil Nadu minister, said on Thursday, warning the makers of the film.

The film had landed in a controversy before its release when Varun Rajendran accused director AR Murugadoss of plagiarising the story of his film Sengol. The matter got resolved in an out-of-court settlement.
Another controversy was around some dialogues in the film where Vijay allegedly mocked the Tamil Nadu chief minister.
