In July, the team had released two high resolution photos of Rajinikanth, asking fans to design their own posters. An open call was made for fans to submit their most creative poster designs for the film and it was announced that the best design would be selected by the makers.
The film’s title and first look were released in April this year. A few weeks ago, Rajinikanth and Nayanthara flew together to Jaipur to join the final schedule of Darbar. With the film gearing up to hit the screens for Pongal next year, the schedule was supposed to be wrapped up within the next three weeks.
While Nayanthara is playing one of the leads, the film also has Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Yogi Babu, Jeeva, Prakash Raj, Nivetha Thomas, Dalip Tahil, Soori, Harish Uthaman, Manobala, Suman, Anandaraj, Rao Ramesh and Bose Venkat in the cast.
Suniel Shetty and Prateik Babbar play the antagonists and it is believed that Prateik will play Suniel’s brother in the film. Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh's father Yograj Singh has also been roped in and according to sources, Yograj will be playing a very important role in the film.
Anirudh Ravichander has been signed to compose the music, Santosh Sivan is handling the cinematography, and Sreekar Prasad will take care of the editing.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, Rajinikanth will be playing the role of a cop in Darbar, a character he’s taken up after almost 25 years since films like Moondru Mugam and Pandiyan. The project, which is being produced by Lyca Productions, marks the first time collaboration between AR Murugadoss and Rajinikanth and would be the third outing for Lyca Productions with Rajinikanth after Kaala (distributor) and 2.0.
