The shooting of Karthi-starrer Sardar has been happening for a long time. The team had released its teaser a year ago, and announced the movie as a theatrical release for Deepavali sometime ago. They have now revealed that a few portions involving Chunky Panday in the film have been shot lavishly.

The Bollywood actor is playing the antagonist in the action thriller which has PS Mithran at its helm. The former is making his Tamil debut with the project the shooting of which has been happening in Azerbaijan and Georgia.

According to a report in TOI, the makers chose those two countries for shooting to establish the grand world of the character essayed by Chunky in the film. He will be seen as a rich, but evil businessman in the movie. They shot for around 10 days and spent almost ₹3 crores to shoot only those portions.

The team is yet to complete shooting for the movie; a few portions of Karthi are still pending. The actor will be seen essaying dual roles in Sardar. The grapevine has it that he plays a cop and a prisoner in the project which has music composed by GV Prakash.

Raashi Khanna and Rajisha Vijayan play female leads in the film which has action sequences choreographed by Dhilip Subbarayan. George C Williams and Ruben are in charge of cinematography and editing respectively for the movie.

The film's digital rights were bagged by aha Tamil a while ago. Sardar is expected to drop on the OTT platform after a month of its theatrical release. The movie is likely to have a box office clash with Ajith's AK 61 (tentative title). The last time their films released around the same time was in 2013 when Ajith's Arambam and Karthi's All in All Azhagu Raja hit the screens for Deepavali festival.
