“Actually, I don’t like doing a cop role because it has too much responsibility attached to it. I like playing easy-going roles. But AR Murugadoss came with a very different story. It is not a regular cop character. It is very different. His visualisation and imagination are very different,” says Rajinikanth while talking about doing a cop film. AR Murugadoss on why Rajinikanth said yes to Darbar, “Rajinikanth said yes because of the character. The script is very emotional and has Thalaiva’s mass elements”. “The hand of God was on me and that hand is of his (Rajinikanth). I was scared, nervous because I didn’t know what to do, but he makes you so comfortable that it’s unbelievable. He is one person who is so simple , and that’s why I consider him God. We all keep learning from him because we all emulate him,” added Suniel Shetty.
