However, the movie is said to have witnessed a significant drop when it comes to the entire south India, with industry experts saying it earned Rs 153.3 crore at the domestic box office. Elsewhere, like in the US, Malaysia, Australia, UAE and a few other countries with high Tamil population, the movie has performed well.
While the total collection of Sarkar stands at Rs 14.94 crore at the end of the third weekend, it remains to be seen if it will stay on top of the charts, as this weekend will see the release of Rajinikanth’s 2.0. The science fiction action movie will be hitting a good number of screens on November 29, 2018.
