A.R. Murugadoss’ ‘Darbar’ To Feature Tamil Superstar Rajnikanth

Anirudh is scoring the music for the film, his successive outing with the superstar after the hit ‘Petta’ whose songs went on to become chartbusters.

Rajnikanth’s upcoming movie’s title and first look was released on Tuesday. The actor shares the screen with Nayanthara in ‘Darbar’ which is also his first collaboration with director A.R. Murugadoss. 

Going by the first look, which features a police cap, badge, belt, crime scene tape and handcuffs, this may be the first film after 25 years, where Rajnikanth will play a police officer. 

The poster carried a catchy punchline “you decide whether you want me to be good bad or worse,” and was splashed with paraphernalia attached to the police. Besides, it features a spectacled and bearded Rajinikanth.

The first look also carried what seemed to be the Gateway of India in Mumbai, hinting that the story might be based in the western metropolis

Murugadoss’ earlier action flick ‘Thupakki’ starring top actor Vijay was based in Mumbai.

Anirudh is scoring the music for the film,  his successive outing with the superstar after the hit ‘Petta’ whose songs went on to become chartbusters. 

Produced by Lyca Productions, the crew consists cinematographer Santosh Sivan and editor Sreekar Prasad. ‘Darbar’ is slated for a 2020 Pongal release.
