Shooting of actor Rajinikanth's 'Darbar' is currently progressing at high speed in Mumbai. Last week, a shooting spot still from the film got leaked featuring Thalaivar, Nivetha Thomas, and comedian Yogi Babu from a scene. The film, which is being directed by AR Murugadoss, will see Rajini play a cop after 25 years. He was last seen playing the character in 1992 film 'Pandian'. Nivetha will reportedly play the actor's daughter in the film.
Last month, the filmmakers released a poster with the headshot of a happy Rajinikanth surrounded by all things police. From a rifle to belt and police badge, the poster already has people raving about the film. It was announced earlier that Pratiek Babbar has been roped in to play one of the antagonists in the film. He called it once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Rajinikanth.
The film also stars Nayanthara, which will be her third outing with Rajini after 'Chandramukhi' and 'Kuselan'. Anirudh Ravichander will compose the music of the film while Santosh Sivan will crank the camera and Sreekar Prasad will take care of editing. The film was originally supposed to be produced by Sun Pictures.
