Vijay has been busy with his next outing Sarkar for quite a while now. The shooting of this film commenced early this year and is progressing at a brisk pace. While the team is gearing up to fly down to the United States of America to film a few songs and scenes, Vijay has begun to dub for his portions.
According to sources in the know, he will be completing it soon, so as to fly down to the US right on time. Soon after the team wraps up the shooting schedule in the US, it will return to Chennai where some more important scenes will shot before the project will be wrapped up completely.
Vijay is collaborating with director AR Murugadoss for the third time after Kaththi and Thuppaki.
According to the reports, Vijay will be seen playing the Chief Minister in this film. Reports said that Vijay will play an US-educated IT professional who is interested in social welfare activities. After certain incidents, he understands the need for power to be able to help people. He then decides to take a political plunge which eventually leads him to the Chief Ministerâ€™s chair. If this turns out to be true, it will be Vijayâ€™s first time playing the CM in a movie.
Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman is scoring music for this film with Girish Gangadharan wielding the camera and A Sreekar Prasad editing it.
Sarkar, which is gearing up for a Diwali release this year, is being bankrolled by Kalanithi Maran under his banner Sun Pictures on a huge budget. Keerthy Suresh plays the heroâ€™s love interest in Sarkar with Varalaxmi Sarathkumar roped in for an important role. The star cast also includes Prem Kumar, Yogi Babu, Radha Ravi and Pala Karuppiah.
While the Sarkar team is yet to complete the shooting, there are reports that its audio launch will take place in September. We need to wait for an official word on when it will take place and where.
