Thalapathy Vijay's market has gone from strength to strength in the US. His movies have consistently raised the bars in terms of business and this has possibly given confidence for the distributors to give biggest release for the actor's next movie Sarkar in the North America.
Sarkar is releasing in two languages – Tamil and Telugu – in the US and distributed by Narmadha Travels and Kollywood Movies USA. The distributors have released the first set of theatres where they have listed over 160 screens across the country.
The next set of theatres will be released in a few days. Vijay's previous movie was released in over 150 screens and looking at the current trends, Sarkar would easily get 225+ screens in North America.
The distributors have planned for grand premieres across the country on 5 November, a day before the film's release in India. It may be recalled that Vijay's Mersal had premieres in 127 locations and had earned $343,086.00 from the special shows.
Thalapathy's market consistently grown in the US and today he commands sizeable fan following among both Tamil and Telugu communities. His Mersal had grossed $1,830,866 in its lifetime and is in the fourth place among the highest-grossing Tamil films in the US after Rajinikanth's Kabali ($4,585,808), Enthiran (2,021,465) and Kaala ($1,888,067).
