The Pongal 2020 release is directed by A.R. Murugadoss

Rajinikanth’s new look from his upcoming film ‘Darbar’ features the Superstar in a completely new avatar, that is exciting fans of the actor-politician.

Wearing a vest, the 68-year-old shows off his toned arms in a vest in the middle of a work-out session (or is he preparing to throw the barbell at someone in an action sequence?) in the new poster.

Director A.R.Murugadoss tweeted the poster, captioning it, “Younger, smarter, wiser, tougher... Thalaivar in a never seen before Avatar.”

Earlier, the official first looks from Darbar, as well as the title design were revealed in July by the filmmaker. One still showed the Superstar in a cop uniform wielding a sword, while the other sees him smiling in a suit.

The film also stars the likes of Nayantara, Nawab Shah, Suniel Shetty, Nivetha Thomas and Yogi Babu in prominent roles. The music will be composed by Anirudh Ravichander for his second film in a row with Rajinikanth after Petta, while cinematography and editing will be handled by Santhosh Sivan and Sreekar Prasad.

The film, which is the 167th film of Rajinikanth’s career, is scheduled for release during Pongal 2020.
