Sarkar box office collection day 1

Sarkar, released in over 3000 screens around the world, has earned a gross collection of approximately $145,000 just from the premiere shows in the United States and the number, after the first day is expected to only go up.

The film directed by AR Murugadoss has also created records in the overseas markets. That is leading to massive collections for the film in Tamilnadu as well as other states. The film's collection was equally impressive on the second day with Rs 2.32 crores collected at the ticket window. Unconfirmed reports hint that the film has collected above 6 Crores on day 1 at the Kerala box office.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, "The hugely awaited #Tamil biggie #Sarkar, which opened today, has got fantastic showcasing outside Tamil Nadu as well..." Even in Andhra Pradesh and Nizam region, which is considered as Vijay's weakest centers in the south, the film performed well at the box office. "Instead, we gave permission for seven shows daily", he said. It has not only conquered Baahubali 2, but has also created several new records in India and overseas as well.

The AR Murugadoss film, which hit screens on November 6, on its opening day, received mixed response from movie buffs and critics. On Thursday, some party workers tore posters and banners of the movie in front of theatres in Madurai and Coimbatore.

The political party has stated that actor Varalaxmi Sarathkumar's role in Sarkar is inspired by late chief minister J Jayalalithaa. Hindustan Times tried to reach the filmmakers regarding the protest, however, they have refrained from responding.
