Vijay's reaction when Murugadoss revealed his plans to direct Rajinikanth
The filmmaker has said that he told Vijay that he was in talks for a Rajinikanth film during the last stages of Sarkar. "His reaction was 'super. Very good.' He said 'a director is incomplete without working with Rajinikanth sir. ' Vijay sir told me that a filmmaker can be only satisfied when he gets opportunity to direct Thalaivar. 'You will only become a complete filmmaker when you direct him'. These are his exact words," the director revealed in the promotional interview of Darbar.

ARM's Experience with Rajinikanth
AR Murugadoss has said that he did not have much reference when it comes to casting Rajinikanth in a cop role. "Rajini sir wore khakhi a long ago for Alex Pandian and Moondru Mugam. So, the experience was new to him and me," he said. The filmmaker revealed that the reason why the 69-year old was excited because Darbar ilm is not made in his usual style.

 "So, Rajini sir requested me to show him the film. His character needs to plan and execute strategies to solve problems. There are mind games which excited him in the film," the Thuppakki creator explains. AR Murugadoss claims Thalaivar to have watched the movie . "He saw the unedited version during the dubbing, but he is yet to watch the final product,"
