Prateik Babbar will be sharing screen space with Rajinikanth for the first time. He will play the antagonist in Darbar. “It is such a dream come true to have bagged this project in such little time. This year is looking very positive for me and Sanya (Sagar) has been such a great influence on my life professionally and personally,” the actor said in a statement.
Suniel Shetty, who made his debut in the Tamil film industry with 2001 film 12B, will also be seen playing the main antagonist in the AR Murugadoss directorial.
Darbar is Murugadoss’ first collaboration with Rajinikanth, and it will feature the Superstar as a cop on screen after a gap of 25 years.
Darbar, which is bankrolled by Lyca Productions, is set to release on Pongal.
