The director says, he was sure that he wants to do an action film with Rajnikanth. He also wanted to write a film that Is new for the actor. The director decided to make a crime investigation drama with various fight sequences.
The director also revealed that Rajinikanth wanted it to be as raw and real as possible. He agreed to the film on the condition that Murugadoss will not dilute the plot just to please the audience. The actor also asked the makers to do few changes in the script which he was happy to do.
The film has been shot in Mumbai. A daily quoted Murugadoss as saying, “Rajini Sir plays a cop in Mumbai. We shot the entire film on the streets and other outdoor locations of Mumbai. How did we avoid the crowds? We shot in the early mornings and during weekends. It must have been tough on Rajiniji. But he is a fighter. He will never give up, no matter what.”
Darbar will be releasing in several languages which also includes Hindi.
Murugadoss added, “Every version of Darbar is the same except that the dialogues are in a different language. We are releasing on Thursday January 9 ahead of Pongal so that the audiences can avail of the festive week. I am aware there are other big films releasing that week, like Mahesh Babu’s new film. He’s such a big star in Andhra.”
