Yenna Rascala Rajinikanth is back and this time with our Yeda Anna, Suniel Shetty. After his massive blockbuster entertainer Petta directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Superstar Rajnikanth is currently acting in his 167th movie Darbar directed by AR Murugadoss, and the movie is produced by Lyca Productions. The movie is being shot in Mumbai at a brisk pace.
Now as per a report in a leading daily, Suniel Shetty plays Prateik’s father and he’ll take on Rajinikanth, who plays the role of an IPS officer in this cop drama.
It would be interesting to see the actor play an antagonist after 15 long years, his last being with Shah Rukh Khan in Main Hoon Na.
The 57-year-old actor will begin the shoot for “Darbar” in July in Mumbai. Rajinikanth, who plays the role of a cop, started shooting for the film in Mumbai in mid-April. This isn’t Shetty’s debut in the south. He has previously acted in Malayalam movies. He recently wrapped up Priyadarshan’s multi-lingual period drama “Marakkar: The Lion of Arabian Sea”, which also stars Mohanlal.
Produced by Lyca Productions, Darbar also has Nayanthara, Yogi Babu, Prakash Raj and Dalip Tahil in pivotal roles. The film has music by Anirudh Ravichander, cinematography by Santosh Sivan, and editing by Sreekar Prasad.
