Meanwhile, in AR Murugadoss directed Darbar, Rajinikanth returns to playing a cop after 25 years. The last time the actor donned khaki was for 1992 Tamil actioner Pandian. The motion poster of Darbar was released last week. It revealed that Rajinikanth plays a rowdy cop who doesn’t care about the rules. The motion poster was received well. It was recently revealed that Darbar, produced by Lyca Productions, will be dubbed and released in Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam.
The film, which has music by Anirudh Ravichander, marks the maiden collaboration of Rajinikanth and Murugadoss. In a recent interview, the Akira director revealed that audiences can look forward to see Rajinikanth in his charismatic avatar yet in Darbar.
