Sarkar box office collection is estimated to be around Rs 145 crore gross worldwide after three days of release with the film faring well in Tamil Nadu, according to reports. The film, directed by AR Murugadoss, is facing a lot of heat in Tamil Nadu from the ruling party. Despite the protest and controversies, the Vijay starrer managed to rake in the money in the state.
Industry tracker Sreedhar Pillai tweeted, “#Sarkar 4 days (Nov 6 to 9) gross in Chennai City = ₹6.45 Cr. A drop on Thursday & Friday due to “fear psychosis” created by raging political controversies, otherwise would have crossed 7 Cr. Expected to rock for weekend as advance booking is solid.”
