Darbar pre-release event is held on a grand scale at Shilpakala Vedika in Hyderabad and all the members from the cast were present here as a part of the event. At the event, Rajinikanth was overwhelmed with the huge number of audiences that were present at the auditorium.
He said, “I didn't expect that this event will be this big. NV Prasad garu usually goes in for low-profile events. I guess he is damn sure that 'Darbar' will be a big hit. I am still the lead man at this age only because of the love of fans, the encouragement they show. I owe my energy and happiness to my belief that we have to expect less, eat modestly, sleep normally, exercise well and talk less. If you do these things, you will be happy forever. It was in 1976 that 'Anthuleni Katha' released in Telugu. 99 percent of those who are here today were not even born then. “
The actor is pretty much fluent in Telugu and spoke everything in Telugu only. He added, “The Telugus love me as much as the Tamils. They have always encouraged good movies. My movies have done very well in Telugu not just because of me. During the making of a film, some magic has to happen. But that's not in our hands. 'Darbar' felt like magic during the making stage. I had been wanting to work with Murugadoss for years. It finally happened with this film.”
