In the state, too, Sarkar broke records by reaching the spot that was previously dominated by SS Rajamouli's Baahubali - The Conclusion. According to the reports, the film even had marathon shows in some of the centres in the state. It has not only conquered Baahubali 2, but has also created several new records in India and overseas as well.

After actor Vijay's "Mersal" landed in a controversy over dialogues on GST last year, it's the turn of the actor's Diwali release, "Sarkar", to end up in the crosshairs of the powers that be this year, with a few ministers threatening government's intervention to get some "offensive scenes" from the movie removed.

The AR Murugadoss film, which hit screens on November 6, on its opening day, received mixed response from movie buffs and critics. "His previous Mersal also did so but in four or five days". The most remarkable one is that it has broken the record of Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju that had the highest opening day collection of 2018 so far.

Vijay's Sarkar, which released on November 7 has made the ruling dispensations see red.

The film drew massive crowds across the globe.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, "The hugely awaited #Tamil biggie #Sarkar, which opened today, has got fantastic showcasing outside Tamil Nadu as well..." In Kerala, it grossed over Rs. 6 crores on release day, registering a new all-time opening day record. The day two collection is estimated to be Rs 2.32 crore. Writer and assistant director Varun Rajendran had claimed that the Sarkar story was based on his script titled Sengol.

The film had 3200 screens and released across 80 countries, thus making it widest Tamil release ever.

Yesterday, another state minister, Kadambur C Raju also threatened action if the objectionable scenes were not removed.
