Superstar Rajinikanth who gave back to back hits with Shankar's sci-fi hit 2.0 and Karthik Subbaraj's crime drama Petta, is all set for his upcoming film Darbar. With this movie, Thailavar re-unites with AR Murugadoss for the very first time and the shooting of the film commenced on April 22. Recently, Rajinikanth and co-star Nayanthara were filming for Darbar in a Mumbai college. Unfortunately, the students had a clash with the crew, when the latter did not allow them to meet their favourite star.

The students went on to protest over these strict rules drawn by the crew and indulged stone pelting in the college premises. Reports suggest that the brawl began when the fans were restricted from clicking pictures on the sets of the film.
Following this incident, AR Murugadoss even complained about the students' behaviour to the college management and decided to scout another location for the film. As of now, the movie has been put on hold.
Nayanthara, who was also Rajini's co-star in Kuselan and Chandramukhi, was at the sets along with the superstar when the incident took place.
In Darbar, we will see Thalaivar essaying the role of a cop. The last time he played a cop was 27 years back in 1992 film Pandian. Moreover, Darbar is written and directed by AR Murugadoss and bankrolled by Allirajah Subaskaran. The film also stars Prateik Babbar as an antagonist.
Speaking about the film, Prateik said "It is such a dream come true to have bagged this project in such little time," AR Murugadoss excels in helming political thrillers as his last hit featuring Vijay's Sarkar and Mahesh Babu's Spyder were both successful at the box-office.
