Superstar Rajinikanth's new film, which was tentatively titled Thalaivar 167, has now been named 'Darbar'. The first look of the film was released by the film's director AR Murugadoss this morning.
This is the Ghajini director's first project with Rajinikanth. The film will star Nayanthara in the female lead, while Anirudh Ravichander, who composed the music for Rajini's last film Petta, will be joining hands with the Thalaivar once again. This will be Nayanthara's fourth film with the 68-year-old superstar after Chandramukhi, Kuselan and Sivaji.
The first look has elements from a cop's uniform - belt, shoes and cap - as well as handcuffs and guns, confirming reports that Rajinikanth will play a policeman in the film. Before this, he was seen as a cop in films like Moondru Mugam, Pandian and Kodi Parakuthu.
'You decide whether you want to be good, bad or worse' - is the line highlighted in the first look poster. Shooting of Darbar is to begin from tomorrow. The poster suggests that the movie will hit the screens on Pongal Day, 2020.
