Minister warns of action against Sarkar

The film has earned around Rs 30 crore in Tamil Nadu, highest for any Tamil Film so far while it has earned Rs 2.37 crore in Kerala, beating the Rajinikanth's Kaala which had earned Rs 1.75 crore.

State ministers CV Shanmugam and Kadambur C Raju had objected to scenes showing the state government giving away mixer grinders to voters and people burning pre-election freebies, besides a number of dialogues critical of the government.

Coming back to the Thugs of Hindostan, the Vijay Krishna Acharya directed film is expected to get screened in around 6,000 theaters worldwide.

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 Karnataka too, the film performed well and earned Rs 6.1 crore and beat Rajinikanth's opening day collection of Kabali. "Instead, we gave permission for seven shows daily", he said. With his collection in the country and by becoming the fourth biggest south Indian film after Baahubali 2, Baahubali and Kabali, Vijay has yet again proved his stronghold at the box office.

The movie which has successfully minted 100 crores within two days of opening is getting a mixed reaction from the public. A group of activists even protested outside theatres in Madurai, Coimbatore and in Chennai which screened the movie.

The political party has stated that actor Varalaxmi Sarathkumar's role in Sarkar is inspired by late chief minister J Jayalalithaa. Also, the alleged insults against the freebies are being removed, according to reports.
