Following the commercial success of Thuppakki and Kaththi, actor Vijay and filmmaker A.R Murugadoss have teamed up for the third time in upcoming political action-thriller Sarkar. The film’s first look and title were revealed last week on the occasion of Vijay’s birthday on June 22. While the title and the first poster were released on the eve of his birthday on June 21, two more posters were released the next day as a birthday gift to his fans. The film’s shooting is progressing at breakneck speed and as announced earlier, the makers recently reconfirmed that the film is on track for Diwali release. Sun Pictures is bankrolling the film on a lavish budget.
According to the industry grapevine, the shoot of Sarkar will very soon shift to Las Vegas where the team is believed to shoot the introductory song of Vijay. It is also being rumoured that the film stars Vijay as a US-returned character who vows to bring about change in his society. Veteran actor Radha Ravi is tipped to be playing the antagonist in the film. Keerthy Suresh has rejoined hands with Vijay after last year’s Bairavaa. The film also stars Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, Prem Kumar and Yogi Babu.
A.R Rahman has been officially signed to compose music for the project, which will mark his reunion with Murugadoss after the Hindi version of Ghajini. Girish Gangadharan, the young lensman whose recent work includes Kali and Solo, is cranking the camera. National award-winning editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the film. All eyes are on Sarkar as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high. Two of Vijay’s best films in recent years have come from Murugadoss and it naturally has built high anticipation around their next project. Sarkar is set for box-office clash with Suriya’s NGK, which is also confirmed to hit the screens this Diwali.

The title track named as “Simtangaaran” means the one whom people will never blink while seeing him perform said the lyricist.

Word jaalam from @Lyricist_Vivek 💥
Kinda takes time to actually sync in!
Accoustic drum rolls and the chorus give out a slow folk song. #Simtaangaran
