The single release sets the tone for the audio launch of Sarkar on October 2. However, the makers have plans to unveil one more song before the complete album hit the stores on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi.
It is rumoured that AR Rahman has scored five songs for Sarkar.
Sarkar has Varalaxmi Sarathkumar playing an important role with Yogi Babu, Papri Ghosh, Prem Kumar, Yogi Babu and others in the supporting cast. It has Girish Gangadharan's cinematography and A Sreekar Prasad's editing.
