Vijay in a still from Sarkar. In Tamil Nadu, Sarkar grossed almost 50cr in just two days which is the highest for any Tamil film. Shanmugam hit out at the makers of the film, saying government schemes had been criticised in a manner that would amount to instigating the people to resort to violence. "I will consult with the chief minister (Edappadi K Palaniswami) to decide on next course of action", Raju said. Looking at the buzz around the film, Sarkar will also pose a tough competition to Thugs of Hindostan in the South and global circuits, even though ToH is releasing in 7000 screens worldwide. Even as the state ministers took on the actor and the film's producers, neither actor Vijay nor Sun Pictures preferred to react to the developments till Wednesday evening. The posters, released as the first look, showed the actor smoking a cigar.

That said, Sarkar's performance at the box office too has been nothing short of astonishing as the action political drama has now grossed 100 crores across the world in a span of just two days. He has cited a scene in which the director himself appears and throws mixers, grinders and fans into a raging fire to denote that people should reject freebies.

Bryan Cranston confirms 'Breaking Bad' movie in development
Breaking Bad , the AMC drama that ended its hugely successful run in 2013, is now reportedly said to be getting a feature film . It was followed by the prequel series Better Call Saul , also co-created by Gilligan, and still ongoing on AMC's airwaves.

AIADMK leaders and workers today protested outside a multiplex in Madurai against the film.

This is not the first time that Vijay's films have run into trouble for their alleged political views. Directed by Atlee, "Mersal" was slammed by the Tamil Nadu section of the Bhartiya Janata Party over a few scenes in the movie which reportedly take a dig at demonetisation, the Goods and Services Tax and the Digital India initiative.
