Also starring Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Radharavi and Pala Karuppaiah in important roles, Sarkar will see Girish Gangadharan's camera work, best known for his work on Angamaly Diaries.

The first look of the movie, produced by Kalanidhi Maran's Sun Pictures, was released in June. It led to a controversy as it showed Vijay smoking a cigarette with PMK leader and former Union Minister Anbumani Ramadoss and anti-tobacco groups criticising the actor, saying the poster promoted smoking, forcing the producers to withdraw it.

Vijay's last movie, Mersal, had kicked up a row over its dialogue with political overtones like those on the Goods and Services Tax.

Sarkar is slated to hit screens on 6 November worldwide.
