Darbar, directed by AR Murugadoss, features Rajinikanth in the role of a police officer after 25 years. He was last seen playing a cop in 1992 Tamil film, Pandian. In July, Murugadoss teased fans with two exclusive stills from the film. While one of the stills featured Rajinikanth in khaki, walking with an iron road in his hand and a fiery look on his face; the other picture featured him wearing a light blue coat with rolled up sleeves.
Murugadoss took to Twitter to share the stills and he wrote: “Hi guys. The HD photos of our very own Thalaivar & title Design of Darbar will be released at 7:00 PM. Get creative and do what you do the best. Darbar poster design. The best design will be selected and released officially.”
The first look poster of Darbar was released not long ago. It featured the headshot of a happy Rajinikanth, who is surrounded by a rifle, a belt and a police badge. The film, which will be dubbed and released in Telugu, also stars Suniel Shetty as the prime antagonist. Actor Prateik Babbar, Nayanthara, Nivetha Thomas and Yogi Babu play crucial roles. While Anirudh Ravichander has composed the music, Santosh Sivan has cranked the camera.
