Sarkar, starring Vijay, Keerthy Suresh and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, earned a whopping Rs 30 crore on the opening day. The film received mixed reviews.
The film also faced protests after AIADMK workers took exception to scenes in the film criticising the state government’s welfare schemes. On Tuesday, Kamal Haasan came out in support of the film and the team and tweeted, “Sarkar has been certified by CBFC. Yet Government dares to muffle the right of people to express. This is not democracy. Fascism was defeated before, will be done again. @ARMurugadoss.”
