‘I don’t play a chief minister in Sarkar. But in real life, if I become one I won’t be acting. I will perform the role with honesty,’ Vijay said. Speaking at the Sarkar audio launch in Chennai, Vijay, said, ‘if I became a chief minister I want to eradicate corruption’.

He said in a lighter vein, ‘Usually they form a party, contest elections and form government (Sarkar). But we have made Sarkar and are contesting elections’.

‘When I meet you fans at such events, I feel overjoyed. Thanks, AR Rahman sir for doing this film. Your association with this film is like Sarkar bagging an Oscar,’ Vijay said.

He added, ‘If the leader is just, the government will flourish. But it just takes time.’ At the event, fans cheered Vijay whenever he spoke about contemporary politics and said that there is an urgent need to weed out corruption.

His fans believe that Vijay has fixed time for his entry to politics. He may spell out his stand soon. Sarkar is just the beginning. Watch out for more in the coming days.
