Generally, Telugu filmmakers don’t release their films for Deepavali, while Tamil filmmakers consider the festival auspicious. So Tamil superstar Vijay will be releasing his forthcoming film, Sarkar, on November 6 for Deepavali. Directed by A.R. Murugudoss, the Telugu distribution rights were acquired by Vallabhaneni Ashok for a whopping price.
“The recently released trailer and the dialogues have become a big hit on the social media. We are planning to do a pre-release event here in Hyderabad and Vijay is going to attend it,” says Vallabhaneni. Keerthy Suresh and Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar are the two female leads.
It is interesting to see how Murugudoss has shaped the film, given that it has a few political dialogues as well. The director had earlier delivered a big dud in Spyder with Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu.
“There are many political films that have been released recently and how Murugudoss has made his film differently as compared to them is a big question,” says a source.
