While Sarkar is easily the biggest release down south, in other parts of the country, too, it is expected to make a good amount of money. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “The hugely awaited #Tamil biggie #Sarkar, which opened today, has got fantastic showcasing outside Tamil Nadu as well… In Mumbai, for instance, the plexes have allotted 8, 9, even 11 and 12 shows every day, which is a rarity… The hype is truly tremendous… #SarkarDiwali.”
