The first look poster of Rajinikanth’s next film Darbar is out. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s poster and news on his Twitter handle.

This will be the superstar’s first-time collaboration with the Ghajini director AR Murugadoss.

The film also has Nayanthara in the lead. Rajinikanth has earlier worked with her on films like Chandramukhi, Kuselan and Sivaji (in which she had a cameo)

The superstar will be seen donning the role of an IPS officer. He will be seen in a dual role, according to some reports. The poster shows a fiery Rajinikanth with guns with the Gateway of India in the backdrop. Murugadoss’ earlier action-film, Thuppakki, was also based in Mumbai. Rajinikanth will return to  playing the role of a police officer after a good 25 years.

The poster also has a tagline that states, ” you decide whether you want me to be good bad or worse,” in the typical Rajinikanth style.

The director also shared the film’s poster on his social media handle with the caption: “Here you go guys!!! The first look of our very own Thalaivar in #Darbar.”

Directed by Lyca Productions, Santosh Sivan has been roped in as the cinematographer while Anirudh Ravichander will compose the music for the film.

Darbar is slated to release next year on Pongal.
