Following the commercial success of Thuppakki and Kaththi, actor Vijay and filmmaker AR Murugadoss have teamed up for the third time in upcoming political action-thriller Sarkar. The film’s first look and title were revealed on the occasion of Vijay’s birthday on June 22.

While the title and the first poster were released on the eve of his birthday on June 21, two more posters were released the next day as a birthday gift to his fans. The film’s shoot has been going on at breakneck speed over the course of last few months and, on Sunday, Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, who plays a pivotal role in the film, took to Twitter to announce the completion of the project.

She wrote: “The mandatory group photo after we finish filming a movie, especially one as special as Sarkar.” She also posted a picture featuring Murugadoss and his assistants and some technicians of the film.

If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, film stars Vijay as a US-returned character who vows to bring about change in his society. Veteran actor Radha Ravi is tipped to be playing the antagonist in the film. Keerthy Suresh has rejoined hands with Vijay after last year’s Bairavaa. The film also stars Prem Kumar and Yogi Babu.

The film’s introductory song was shot in Los Vegas not very long ago. With the project being completed as planned, it’s definitely hitting the screens this Diwali.

AR Rahman has been officially signed to compose music for the project, which will mark his reunion with Murugadoss after the Hindi version of Ghajini. Girish Gangadharan, the young lensman whose recent work includes Kali and Solo, is cranking the camera.

National award-winning editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the film. All eyes are on Thalapathy 62 as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high.
