At the Sarkar audio launch, Thalapathy Vijay won everyone's heart. His punchline Usupethuravan kitta ummunum kadupethuravan kitta gammunnum irunda vaazhkai jammunu irukkum (If we maintain silence when people provoke and instigate us, our life will be peaceful) received huge applause.
The actor hinted a possible political entry. Clarifying the rumor on acting as Chief Minister in Sarkar, Vijay said: “No I’m not acting as Chief Minister in Sarkar”. When the event’s host Prasanna asked what the actor would change in the state if he ever comes to politics, Vijay said: “It’s an imaginative question right? I will not act if I become a Chief Minister in real life”.
Vijay also narrated a small story to convey that only if the leaders refuse to accept the bribe, the next set of officers and ministers will not encourage corruption. “It’s not easy to eradicate corruption in the country because we all are used to it now. But a leader will come in this difficult situation and form a Government(Sarkar) under him”, added Vijay.
Vijay also thanked AR Rahman by saying, “Having Rahman sir on board for Sarkar is like our movie has got an Oscar award already. If Aalaporan Tamizhan is Tamilian’s identity, Oru Viral Puratchi is people’s identity. Rahman sir was very sweet to ask me to sing a song in Sarkar but I politely refused because I didnt want to ruin the track”.
“In our combination, we have been only giving hits. Thank you Murugadoss sir for the enjoyable ride. Hope audiences too like our film. If Mersal had shades of politics, in Sarkar, Murugadoss has created magic (Mersal) in politics”
Talking about Keerthy Suresh, Vijay said: “Keerthy Suresh rightly used the opportunity in Mahanati and helped this generation to understand more about Savithri”, he also appreciated Varalakshmi by saying “Only after two schedules, they told me that Varalakshmi is a part of the film. She has proved that no one can replace her in the role offered”.
“I should also thank Radha Ravi sir with whom I started my first film Naalaya Theerpu. Working with Pala. Karuppaiah is a big honor for me. Good to see Yogi Babu’ s tremendous growth as a comedy actor in Tamil cinema”, said Vijay.
“Generally, only after a massive hard work and campaign, politicians will contest in elections to form Sarkar. But we have already created Sarkar and contesting in elections for this Diwali. If you like our film, do vote for us”, signed off Vijay.
