The much anticipated Rajinikanth’s 167th flick Darbar first poster is finally out and the film goes on the floor from April 9 in Mumbai. The film is Thalaivar’s first outing with A R Murgadose and it will bring back the on-screen couple Rajini and Nayanthara after 11 years. The poster of the film drops enough hints such as weapons, handcuffs, IPS insignia, the police cap and belt, and also a police hound, set in the background of the Gateway of India.

The first look of the Darbar was shared by director AR Murugadoss. Sharing the poster on Twitter, he tweeted, “Here you go guys!!! The first look of our very own Thalaivar in #Darbar @rajinikanth @LycaProductions #nayanthara @santoshsivan @anirudhofficial #sreekarprasad #pongal2020” (sic).”

In the poster, Rajini can be seen sporting a menacing smile and salt-and-pepper look. The striking punch line on the poster, “You decide whether you want me to be good bad or worse” has made many fans excited already. His fans are looking forward to the film and some Twitterati has fallen in love with Rajini’s sunglasses on the poster.

One user wrote, “#Darbar Mass first look @ARMurugadoss sir. Waiting for huge one.. @rajinikanth superstar for the reason. His look and charisma vera level.. @kaala1212 @RajiniKanthInd.” While the other tweeted, “The combo I’m waiting for a long time Idhu #Thalaivar in Mass #Darbar Best wishes to @ARMurugadoss sir @anirudhofficial #Nayanthara @LycaProductions and full team.”

The film is expected to have the superstar in dual roles – a cop and a social activist. The film is slated to release during Pongal 2020.
