Tribal children in Kerala choose Vijay's Sarkar over Rajinikanth's 2.0

Thalapathy Vijay is showing all signs of becoming the next Superstar for Tamil cinema. From churning out back-to-back blockbusters to becoming the favourite of the youth and children, the actor is becoming the hero of the masses.
Not only in Tamil Nadu, Vijay has got himself a huge fan following in Kerala as well.
Recently, Umesh Kesavan, the sub-collector of Vayanadu, Kerala shared his experience of watching Sarkar movie with tribal children from the village Mananthavady, which shows how Vijay has won hearts even in the remotest parts of South India.
Umesh Kesavan wanted to take the children of Mahila Samakhya hostel to a movie. He first thought of taking them to Sarkar, but since the film is high on politics, he told the children that he would take them to Rajinikanth's forthcoming film 2.0, which is going to release in 3D.
However, the reaction from the children seems to have surprised the sub-collector. The young fans urged him to take them to Sarkar and chose Vijay's film over Rajinikanth's sci-fi venture.
He wrote on his Facebook timeline, "Took kids from Mahila Samakhya hostel for tribal kids (Mananthavady) to see "Sarkar" movie today. I was not interested to take them for this movie as it is too political for their innocent tastes. I offered them to take for the 3D version of "2.0" whenever it releases but they wished to see Vijay's movie only. The power of cinema and superstars in influencing young minds positively is a largely untapped area so far (sic)."
In Sarkar, Vijay has given out hints about his political ambitions and looks like Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan will find a political rival in Vijay soon.
The Theri actor is now getting ready for his next film with director Atlee, which has music by AR Rahman.
