Sarkar has suffered a serious setback, as the South Indian Film Writers’ Association (SIFW) has declared that the story of assistant director Varun’s Sengol is similar to Vijay’s Sarkar.
Earlier, Varun had filed a case in Madras High Court seeking a ban on Sarkar. In the complaint, he claimed that AR Murugadoss had stolen his story of Sengol and made Sarkar. He further declared that he registered the story with SIFW in 2007.
The court asked the filmmakers and the South Indian Film Writers’ Association to respond to the complaint before October 30.

Meanwhile, the makers of Sarkar had filed a caveat so that anyone who wants to file a case against the film has to discuss it with the production house first.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, Sarkar also stars Keerthy Suresh, Radha Ravi and Varalaxmi in the lead roles. It is slated to release on Diwali.
In an interview K Bhagyaraj, accepted that both the plots are similar. “The main similarity between both the plots are that the vote right of the protagonist being stolen” said the leader of South Indian Film Writer’s association.
He also said ” Murugadoss has to fight only one person that is Varun Rajendran. But I have to earn the enmity of Sun TV in the first place. Secondly, my own son Shanthanu is an ardent fan of Vijay. He will argue with my wife against me. Then I could not face S.A Chandrasekar with a happy face hereafter. Even though I am doing my best to do justice for the post I have given”

“I asked Murugadoss to give credits for Varun Rajendar to A.R Murugadoss as he could not approach with the same story to other heroes because of Vijay’s popularity. If he gives credit to him, it will be useful for Varun in future to approach other producers or heroes but A.R Murugadoss refused to do.” added the Veteran writer, director.
