Thalaivar was last seen in Petta. His next project is titled Darbar. The actor will be seen playing a cop in the film and will be donning the khakhi after almost two decades. Rajinikanthâ€™s Darbar will see Nayanthara as the leading lady and she has already shot for her portions. Actor Prateik Babbar has also joined the cast of Darbar and will be seen playing the lead antagonist.
In an earlier interview, director AR Murugadoss said that the film is not a political entertainer. He assured that Darbar will be a full-fledged commercial flick which will appeal to people of all age groups. The film is slated to release on Pongal 2020.
