Darbar released with a lot of pomp and splendour, with fans offering milk and garlands to life-size cutouts of Rajinikanth, playing the dhol, dancing and even doing fire stunts.

People are excited to see the star playing a cop on screen after more than two decades.

Rajinikanth is known for bringing his signature swag to his characters. At the trailer launch of Darbar, when he was asked how much of his inputs are incorporated into his characters, he said,

“Mera input bhi rehta hai, but director ka input bohot zyada rehta hai. Mujhe maalum nahi actually style kya hai, main jaise life mein har din rehta hoon, waise hi rehta hoon. (I give my inputs, but most of it is the director’s vision. I actually don’t know what style is, I’m the same on screen as I am in real life.)”

Thalaiva for a reason!

Produced by Lyca Productions and directed by AR Murugadoss, Darbar also stars Nayanthara, Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Nivetha Thomas and Yogi Babu in pivotal roles.
