Superstar Rajinikanth stayed out of festival releases citing that other movies should get benefitted from the long holiday weekend. But the massive opening of Petta and the long run of the film at the box office has changed the mind of the actor, so he has decided to release his new cop action thriller film Darbar with director Murugadoss on Pongal 2020.
Rajinikanth’s Kaala and 2.0, which missed the long holiday weekend, opened with average collections on day one but Petta not only opened well but also had a steady run in the core Tamil Nadu market. The film will be predominantly shot in the Mumbai like his 2012 blockbuster film Thuppakki. The first look of Darbar clearly tells us that Rajinikanth plays an audacious cop in the film, the poster also carries a caption ‘You decided whether you want me to be good, bad, or worse’ and gives audiences a glimpse of the actor’s characterization in the film.
