Rajinikanth-starrer 'Darbar' motion poster was released on Thursday driving fans into a frenzy. Kamal Haasan, who is celebrating his 65th birthday today, unveiled the motion poster of the film which is set for 2020 Pongal release.
Rajinikanth is seen donning a police uniform and a jacket that elevates his look from that of a common cop. He is also seen slashing a sword and settling down onto a chair presumably in a basement, all the while, the frame is filled with motes of swirling dust. The motion poster would definitely lift up the little hairs on your back.
