A film that set fans talking right from the moment of its announcement, ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth’s Darbar, under director A. R. Murugadoss is gearing up for a massive Pongal 2020 release. Being produced by Lyca Productions and featuring music by Anirudh Ravichander, this upcoming action cop drama will have its much-awaited motion poster released on November 7 along with the theme track of the film. With Darbar’s story predominantly set in Mumbai and Rajinikanth playing the role of a top police official named Aaditya Arunachalam, popular Malayalam actress Nivetha Thomas has now officially confirmed her casting in the film after speculation about her inclusion since production kicked off earlier this year. She will be playing his daughter and has informed fans to watch out for her role in the film. Check out her tweet below:

Darbar will be the first time Nivetha Thomas will be starring in a Rajinikanth film after starring alongside ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay in Kuruvi and Jilla and in Kamal Haasan’s Papanasam in Tamil. Despite being known among the masses as a Malayalam actress, Nivetha Thomas has become quite popular in Telugu cinema and will no doubt feel Darbar to be the feather in her cap in her career. The film will also see Rajinikanth paired opposite Nayanthara for the fourth time after Chandramukhi, Kuselan and Sivaji. Furthermore, Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty is the prime antagonist and will be playing the role of the head of a multinational corporation while former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s father, Yograj Singh, Prateik Babbar, Yogi Babu, Nivetha Thomas among others are appearing in supporting roles.
