The first look of Tamil screen icon Vijay’s 62nd film features the actor lighting a cigarette against a backdrop of glittering skyscrapers. Directed by AR Murugadoss, Sarkar also stars Keerthy Suresh and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar.

The film marks Vijay’s third collaboration with the filmmaker after the hits Thupakki (2012) and Kaththi (2014). The Sun Pictures production will reportedly star Prem Kumar, Yogi Babu, Radha Ravi and Pala Karuppiah. AR Rahman will compose the music.

The movie is expected to hit theatres during Diwali this year. The makers of the film released two stills from the film to mark the actor’s birthday on June 22.
