The motion poster of actor Rajinikanth‘s next Darbar just dropped. Helmed by AR Murugadoss, Subaskaran’s Lyca Productions is bankrolling it. The film marks the first association of Murugadoss with the actor who will feature as a cop long after his 1992 action-drama Pandian. Actress Nayanthara has been roped in to play the female lead and will be paired opposite the actor for the third time after Chandramukhi and Kuselan.
The motion poster opens with shots of the actor’s shoe stomping on glass and in mid-air action. ‘Aaditya Arunasalam’, his name in the film, is revealed through a shot of his name badge followed by a pull-back shot of the star seated on a rolling chair with brown sunglasses and a jacket whilst armed with a sword. The teaser closes with the title backed by the sound of his footsteps. Anirudh’s background score in the teaser is powerful. The word ‘Thalaiva’, as the actor is fondly referred to, also features in the background score.
