Darbar Box-Office: Rajinikanth's film incurs heavy loss, distributors to go on hunger strike

Superstar Rajinikanth’s latest Tamil release Darbar, which has been directed by AR Murugadoss, has incurred losses of about Rs 70 crore as per trade sources. The film’s distributors have decided to go on a hunger strike after their request to meet Rajinikanth was turned down.

Actor Rajinikanth’s latest Tamil release Darbar, which has been directed by AR Murugadoss, has incurred losses of about Rs 70 crore as per trade sources. The film’s distributors have decided to go on a hunger strike after their request to meet Rajinikanth was turned down.

“Last week, we decided to meet Rajinikanth sir and explain the situation. Distributors across areas have suffered heavy losses. When we approached him, we were stopped by a police force near his residence and we were asked to go away. It’s disappointing that he didn’t even wish to meet us. Therefore, we’ve decided to go on hunger strike,” as per the statement of a distributor. Rajinikanth starrer Lingaa (2014) had faced a similar fate when it incurred heavy losses for distributors.

Made on a budget of Rs 200 crore which includes the Rs 108 crore paycheck of Rajinikanth, Darbar has been adjudged a disaster despite collecting around Rs 250 crore worldwide.

Darbar stars Rajinikanth in the role of an angry cop who sets out to avenge his daughter. The film marked the first time collaboration of Rajinikanth and filmmaker AR Murugadoss, who is best known for helming Ghajini and Kaththi. It marked the return of Rajinikanth in the role of a cop after 25 years.
