Being one of the biggest and most-awaited films of the year, the tag ‘Thalapathy62’ has now paved way to ‘Sarkar’ – the name of the third union of actor Vijay and director AR Murugadoss. The title and first look poster of the film were announced in style on Sun TV, during their 6PM news window on the eve of Thalapathy Vijay’s birthday.
Down below, are five updates that came along with the impressive title and first look poster of the film.

We are confident of making the fans happy.”
