And Sarkar it is! After much trepidation, Vijay’s 62nd film has been named Sarkar to mark the actor’s birthday which falls on June 22. The announcement was made by Sun Pictures who are bankrolling the high budget film. The first look poster of the film was also unveiled along with the title announcement. “Here is the First Look of Thalapathy Vijay’s SARKAR. #Thalapathy62isSARKAR @actorvijay @ARMurugadoss @arrahman,” the tweet read.
