No promotions for Sarkar Telugu version

0

Tamil Superstar Vijay has been struggling to establish his market across Telugu states. His last outing Mersal raked decent numbers in Telugu and is the highest grosser among his films in Telugu.

Vallabhaneni Ashok acquired the Telugu theatrical rights of his next film Sarkar for Rs 6 crores and the film has been sold for Rs 7.70 crores across AP and Telangana. With no big releases for Diwali, the film is expected to register decent numbers in Telugu. AR Murugadoss is the director and Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar are the heroines.

Though the film has been carrying huge buzz in Tamil, the Telugu version is expected to open low. The movie stills of Sarkar are not given to the Telugu producer even after several attempts. Vijay clarified that he is not in a mood to promote the Telugu version of the film. After a debacle like Spyder, AR Murugadoss too is not keen on facing Telugu audience and fans through promotions. With just hours left for the release of Sarkar, the promotions for the Telugu version are yet to kick-start.

Vallabhaneni Ashok and his team are left in shock with the happenings. Vijay who is struggling to establish his market should spend ample time for Telugu promotions. Right from Kamal Haasan to Suriya, Karthi and Vishal, all the Tamil actors have focused on promoting their films in Telugu. But Vijay turned out to ignore Telugu audience which will soon leave him behind in the race in Tollywood.

0

Tamil hero Vijay made some interesting comments during the audio function of his upcoming film Sarkar. He clarified, he is not essaying a Chief Minister role in Sarkar movie. Later, a hypothetical question was asked, “What would you change in the state if you become the CM”, and for this Vijay answered cleverly. His answer clearly exposed his political aspirations.

Sarkar movie is directed by Murugadoss, whose earlier movie Spyder, a bilingual, was a dud at boxoffice. Vijay told, the story of this movie has political backdrop. His earlier movie Mersal also has political dialogues. Vijay was even dragged into controversies because of those dialogues.

For the question, “What would you change in the state if you become the CM”, Vijay answered, ‘I think this is an imaginative question. But what I can say is, I will not ‘act’ if I become a Chief Minister in real life. Also, If I become CM, my primary focus would be to form a corruption free government, which I know is very difficult to achieve.” He also added, “Only if the people at the top level refuse to accept bribes, then only people at lower level also stop encouraging corruption.”

Anyway, its now clear that Vijay has political aspirations and they keep coming out in these kind of events or press meets.

Tamil Hero Vijay in controversy

2

Telugu film industry called for a strike couple of weeks back to resolve issues with Digital Service Providers. Entire Telugu film industry stood behind that and the strike was successful in resolving the issue to some extent as DSPs reduced charges by 22%. Now Tamil Film industry also called for strike and asked all the film industry people to support the strike.

However, Vijay seems to be not supporting the strike call given by the Tamil Nadu Producers Council. Tamil Nadu Producers’ Council had called for a complete shutdown of the industry from March 16 over its issues with Digital Service Providers (DSP). However, Vijay’s upcoming film, which is written and directed by AR Murugaoss, has continued to shoot even after the announced shutdown. The team is currently, busy shooting an action sequence in Chennai.

This received criticism from other Tamil Producers and also Tamil people. Some went to the extent of saying, this incident exposed that there is no unity in Tamil Industry. But the secretary of Tamil Film Producers’ Council stood by Vijay and clarified that the Vijay’s film unit took a special permission for this as stunt choreographers Ram-Lakshman do not have dates for the next two months and the delay will affect the film a lot. However, this statement also slammed by others questioning the double standards of the producers’ council.

We have to wait and see how Vijay responds on this!!
