Despite courting controversies and backlash from members of the ruling party in Tamil Nadu, Sarkar continues to hold steady at the box office. The Vijay starrer is one of the biggest Tamil releases of the year as it was released on 3000 screens across the globe.
Protests had erupted across Tamil Nadu over certain scenes which showed state-provided freebies being thrown in the fire. Members of the ruling party also took objection to the female villain’s being called “Komalavalli”. The actual name of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha was Komalavalli.
The film has been running into controversy after controversy even before its release. Sarkar broke the box office records right on day 2 when it crossed Rs. 100 crores. The film has now collected Rs. 150 crores worldwide beating the lifetime collections of Vijay’s Theri. Trade experts are predicting a lot more by the end of this weekend. Film analyst, Kaushik, posted on his Twitter, “#Sarkar150CR+ WW gross, in just 4 days Crosses Theri’s WW gross & is steadily racing towards the 200 CR mark next. Overseas is giving grt numbers for #ThalapathyVijay as usual, along with TN.. His 3rd 150+.. Vera level! #Sarkar”.

Within minutes of posting the photo, it went viral on social media. Many pointed out that Sarkar team has taken a jibe at the AIADMK government who had protested to remove the scene in which AR Murugadoss sets the freebie (mixie and grinder) given by a political party to fire.

Unnecessary. If team #Sarkar had the real guts they need not have deleted the scenes showing throwing of freebies in fire. Didn’t expect #Vijay #ARMurugadoss to behave in a silly fashion. #SarkarSuccessParty https://t.co/bohzT8unXu

Taking objection to that particular scene, AIADMK party workers staged protests in front many theatres in Madurai, Coimbatore and Chennai. They tore down the banners and created a ruckus.
