"It is such a dream come true to have bagged this project in such little time. This year is looking very positive for me and Sanya (Sagar) has been such a great influence on my life professionally and personally," the actor said in a statement.

"I can't wait to commence shooting with Rajinikanth sir and AR Murugadoss sir this week and create some magic," Prateik had added. Darbar was tentatively titled Thalaivar 167.
