Sarkar Effect

Thalapathy Vijay-Murugadoss’s Sarkar highlighted section 49 (P) from The Conduct of Elections Rules which can be used when an individual's vote was registered by someone else. Though the section has been there since 1961, it has become popular only after the release of Sarkar.

The Election Commission of India is now spreading awareness campaign on section 49 P through posters and newspaper advertisement. “Glad, election commission is bringing awareness on #49p  #Sarkar", tweeted Murugadoss, director of Sarkar.

Murugadoss is currently busy with the pre-production work of his upcoming film with Superstar Rajinikanth while Vijay is busy shooting for Atlee’s yet-untitled sports entertainer.
