"Rajinikanth sir invited me and appreciated my work after the release of Ghajini but we didn't discuss anything about working together in a film. Later, we met again but the project didn't materialize. During Sarkar shoot, I got a call again from the Superstar. This time, I was firm in convincing him with whatever corrections he suggested. Within one month, the project materialized," said Murugadoss.
"Rajini sir told me that he hasn't done a film with the screenplay format of Darbar in his career," said the director who added that Suniel Shetty plays the antagonist in the film.
"Rajini sir is quite excited about the villain character in the film," said the filmmaker.
Darbar is all set to release on Pongal 2020.
