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.
Now the case has been reached verdict. According to the latest development, Varun Rajendran and AR Murugadoss reached a compromise on October 29. However, the details of the compromise have not been announced yet.
Varun’s petition was heard this morning (October 30) at the Madras High Court.
While AR Murugadoss and K Bhagyaraj (President of South Indian Film Writer’s Union) were present, Varun gave it a miss. At the court, Sun Pictures revealed that the two parties have reached a compromise.
Since Varun was not present at the hearing, the judge postponed the case for a couple of hours. The latest buzz doing the rounds on the internet is that Sarkar will see a release without any problem from Varun.
The details of the settlement will be known when Varun and his lawyer attend the hearing that will be held later today.
Shanthanu one of the actor and son of K Bhagyaraj is one of the ardent fan of Vijay in the Kollywood industry. Bhagyaraj already mentioned that his son had shed tears to his mother regarding his father’s activities in the issue.
