Vijay’s upcoming film Sarkar, produced by Sun Pictures, is in the post-production phase and will hit the theatres on Diwali 2018. On October 2, the audio launch of Sarkar took place at a private college in Chennai.
Rumour mills have been busy churning out reports that the teaser of Sarkar, directed by AR Murugadoss, might release on Ayudha Pooja this year, October 18.
This time, writer and assistant director Varun Rajendran has accused Sarkar director AR Murugadoss of plagiarising his story.
Varun has registered a complaint against with South Indian Film Writers Association. In his complaint, he has stated that AR Murugadoss has copied his work titled Sengol, which was registered with the Writer’s Union in 2007.
Varun claimed that he had narrated the story to Vijay’s father SA Chandrasekar. Reportedly, the latter had promised that he would get back with a response and then ignored him completely.
According to reports, actor-director K Bhagyaraj, who is also the president of Writer’s Union, is trying to find an amicable solution to this issue. If the issue persists, then it could be a huge problem to Sarkar, which is slated to hit the screens on Diwali 2018.
“Unfortunately I have seen Keerthy Suresh’s “Savithri” while the halfway shooting of “Sarkar”, If i have seen that movie in the beginning i would not used her like how i used her in this movie” said the director. “I have just used her for beauty aspects other than that there is no much role for her in the movie but I promised her that I surely will cast her in a character oriented movie” added the director.
Sarkar is a political thriller with Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Yogi Babu playing significant roles.
