Malayalam superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran, who is also seen in Bollywood films like Aiyyaa, Aurangzeb and Naam Shabana recently revealed that he had got the offer of directing Thalaivar Rajinikanth post the success of his directorial debut Lucifer, which was a huge box office success. In a recent event, which was arranged for Prithviraj, the actor-director said, “Soon after Lucifer release, I got an offer to direct Rajinikanth sir’s next film. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take it up because of Aadujeevitham. I don’t think I have typed a longer sorry note to anyone in my life.”
Prithviraj is currently basking the success of his latest release of Driving Licence. Talking about his upcoming venture Aadujeevitham, the film is directed by Blessy. The technical crew includes sound engineer Resul Pookutty, DOP KU Mohanan and editor Raja Muhammed. The film is bankrolled by KG Abraham under the banner KGA Films. On the other hand, Rajinikanth is currently gearing up for the release of Darbar, which is set to hit the screens in January 2020. Bollywood stars like Suniel Shetty and Prateik Babbar are also part of this cop actioner along with Nayanthara. Apparently, Kannada star Rakshit Shetty was approached for the lead antagonist in Darbar but due to his work commitments, he couldn't become the part of the film. The actor said he was busy filming Avane Srimannarayana, which is also co-written by him. Rakshit said it was a big loss as he is a Rajinikanth fan like millions but hoped a collaboration would happen soon.
Darbar is bankrolled by Lyca Productions, who previously produced Rajinikanth's last blockbuster 2.0. Ace lensman Santosh Sivan is cranking the camera for Darbar, while Anirudh Ravichander will compose the album. The editing of the film will be done by Sreekar Prasad.
