Rajinikanth is Aaditya Arunachalam in ‘Darbar’

Aaditya and Arunachalam are reportedly the names of A.R. Murugadoss’ son and father respectively.

Rajinikanth fans are looking forward to November 7, when Darbar’s motion poster and theme music will be out. But there’s news even before that: thanks to some latest stills published in a Tamil magazine, we learn that Rajinikanth’s name in the film will be Aaditya Arunachalam.

It’s well known that Rajinikanth plays a cop in the film, directed by AR Murugadoss. Interestingly, Aaditya and Arunachalam are reportedly the names of the filmmaker’s son and father respectively.

Fans of the Superstar will fondly remember Arunchalam, the 1997 film in which Rajinikanth had to accept the unique challenge of spending Rs 30 crores in 30 days. The name has recall value among his fans, who are looking forward to seeing their tinseltown hero don the khakhi.
