The success party was attended by almost all the important crew members including Vijay, Keerthy Suresh, AR Murugadoss, AR Rahman amongst others.
Few days after the film's release, many AIADMK ministers and party cadres expressed their displeasure about certain scenes in 'Sarkar'. The party caders even went on to protest outside various theatres in Tamil Nadu. Many of whom even indulged in damaging the banners and cutouts of Vijay which was placed outside cinema halls.
As a result of which, the 'Sarkar' team went on to delete some visuals and mute some dialogues which were termed 'controversial' and 'politically motivated' by the AIADMK.
However, 'Sarkar' was given a thumbs up by the fans despite the mixed reviews the movie got. The film pundits have claimed that 'Sarkar' has crossed the 200 crore mark at the box office, becoming the highest grossing Tamil film of the year.
