A mega stage with stills of Rajini from the movie has been erected and sources say Anirudh and his team will perform songs on the stage. There will be dance presentations too, it is learnt.
But the highlight is going to be the superstar’s speech, in which he is expected to touch various things including politics. Already, the ‘Summa Kizhi…’ single from ‘Darbar’, which was released last week, has been making waves and topping the charts. Anirudh is said to have loaded the album with mass and class numbers, with a goal to overtake his ‘Petta’ score.
The movie directed by A R Murugadoss is produced by Lyca. Nayanthara, Prateik Babbar, Nivetha Thomas, Dalip Tahil, and Suniel Shetty among others play key roles in ‘Darbar’, in which Rajini plays the role of a police officer, something that he has attempted for the first time in 27 years.
Santhosh Sivan and Sreekar Prasad are taking care of cinematography and editing departments, respectively. It is said the movie would hit the screens on January 9.
