Rajinikanth’s next is Darbar, first look unveiled

The first-look poster of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film is unveiled. The film is titled Darbar. Directed by AR Murugadoss, the film stars Nayanthara as heroine.

Lyca Productions, who is bankrolling the project, tweeted: “Here We Go! #Thalaivar167 😎 is #Darbar 🌟@rajinikanth @ARMurugadoss #Nayanthara @anirudhofficial @santoshsivan @sreekar_prasad pic.twitter.com/bNoEhne6xo.”

The film is helmed by AR Murugadoss, who is known for directing hit films like Thuppakki, Ghajini and most recently Sarkar. This will be Murugadoss’ first project with Rajinikanth.

The movie appears to be a cop drama of sorts. In the first look poster, Rajinikanth’s elated picture takes the centrestage as insignia from a cop’s uniform including a belt and a shoulder badge surround him.

A police dog, several guns and the Gateway of India (located in Mumbai) also appear on the first look poster. The filmmakers have not shared too many details about the project, which is fondly called Thalaivar 167.

It is also said that Rajinikanth is playing dual role in the film. He will be seen as an IPS officer and as a social activist in the upcoming movie. Rajinikanth has earlier donned the khaki in films like Moondru Mugam, Pandian and Kodi Parakuthu.
