Superstar Rajinikanth is kicked about the release of his upcoming film Darbar, directed by AR Murugadoss. The commercial potboiler, bankrolled by Lyca Productions, features Nayanthara, Suneil Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Nivetha Thomas and Yogi Babu in important roles.

There were rumours doing the rounds that the trailer of Rajinikanth’s Darbar will release on his birthday (December 12). However, his fans were in for a disappointment when the makers didn’t release the trailer. On December 14, filmmaker AR Murugadoss took to Twitter to reveal the trailer release date.

The Ghajini director stated that the trailer of Darbar will release on December 16 at 6:30 PM. His post reads, “Hello Friends, Get ready for an action packed Trailer!!! Happy to announce that we will be launching the Trailer of DARBAR on 16th, 6:30 PM. Enjoy… (sic)”

According to sources close to the team, Rajinikanth will play two roles as cop Aaditya Arunasalam and a social activist. The director and the entire Darbar team are tight-lipped about revealing the details regarding the characters and the film in general.

In a recent interview, AR Murugadoss cleared the air and reiterated that Darbar isn’t a political outing but a commercial entertainer which has all typical elements of a Rajinikanth film. Darbar is touted to grace the screens worldwide on January 10.

Recently, the album of Darbar was launched by the entire team at Nehru Stadium in Chennai. The songs composed by Anirudh Ravichander received a lot of mixed reviews from the audience.
