The first look poster of Vijay Sethupathi starrer Tughlaq Durbar is out now. Helmed by newcomer Delhiprasad Deenadayalan, the film is being bankrolled by Lalit Kumar’s Seven Screen Studio banner. The film is pitched to be a political satire that also stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Manjima Mohan in the lead roles. While Aditi is acting with Sethupathi for the second time post Mani Ratnam‘s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (2018), Manjima Mohan will be working with him for the first time.
The poster features a poker-faced Vijay Sethupathi in a black and gold baroque printed shirt with his reflection below, where he is seen to be in a grey shirt with a deceitful smile. Don’t forget to notice the birds around his head amidst all the flashy gold in the poster.
The poster of the film was released by the Sun Network group on all of their handles.

Tughlaq Durbar will see Vijay Sethupathi playing the role of a politician Raja and Manjima plays his younger sister. Vijay Sethupathi’s character reportedly enters politics and slowly learns the intricacies of the same, turning out to be a corrupt politician; some of the early stills from thr film give us Amaidhi Padai vibes. The rest of the story in this film though is about how he turns over a new leaf and tackles the ensuing situations.
The film will see R Parthiepan acting with Vijay Sethupathi for the second time after Naanum Rowdy Dhaan in the role of an antagonist. Karunakaran, Bagavathi Perumal, and Raj have also landed important roles. Manoj Paramahamsa is handling the camera, Govind Vasantha is on the music, Kumar Gangappan is on art and R Govindaraj is on the edit. Dialogues have been written by director Balaji Tharaneetharan.
The team has completed 50% of the shoot and will commence work post-lockdown. Aditi Rao’s portions are yet to be filmed. The team has also altered its plans of shooting outside Chennai in the wake of the pandemic and has decided to stay within the city, Deendayalan told Times Of India.
Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi who was last seen in Ashwath Marimuthu‘s Oh My Kadavule will next feature in several films like Seenu Ramasamy’s Maamanithan and Idam Porul Yaeval, M Manikandan’s Kadaisi Vivasaayi, SP Jhananathan’s Laabam, Venkata Krishna Roghanth’s Yaadhum Oore Yaavarum Kelir, Advait Chandan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, P Virumandi’s Ka Pae Ranasingam, Vignesh Shivan’s Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal, Buchi Babu Sana’s Uppena, and Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Master.
