Sarkar teaser starts with a voice-over of Varalaxmi Sarathkumar introducing Vijay as a corporate monster. He is known for destroying rival companies. Vijay is seen saying, “I am a corporate criminal.” It looks like Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Radha Ravi are playing ruthless politicians in this upcoming political drama Sarkar.
Vijay’s character in Sarkar is inspired by Sundar Pichai, the Google CEO. Sarkar is all about the story of a man from a corporate company foraying into politics. Recently during the media interaction, AR Murugadoss revealed that Vijay character in the film will have negative shades. He also said that the team had done a lot of research on Sundar Pichai’s life. During an interview , AR Murugadoss said, “When we see two dinosaurs fight, there will be one that we want to see winning. Vijay is that dinosaur in the film Sarkar.”
After the blockbuster movies- Thuppakki and Kaththi, this is the third time, Vijay and A R Murugadoss have teamed up for Sarkar. Earlier Vijay and Keerthy Suresh have also worked together for hit movie Bairavaa. This is the second time, when both the actors have collaborated. Apart from the lead pair, Sarkar has other stars like Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Arjun Sarja, Prem Kumar, Radha Ravi and Yogi Babu in supporting roles.
Sarkar is slated to hit the theaters on the occasion of Diwali.
