Wanted to do Chandramukhi spin-off with Rajinikanth: Murugadoss

Director A.R Murugadoss met the press ahead of Darbar's release and revealed that he initially had plans of making a spin-off based on Rajnikanth’s 2005 release, Chandramukhi. The Tamil horror-comedy movie was directed by P. Vasu and featured Rajinikanth in double roles as Vettaiyan and Saravanan. The director Murugadoss further also added that he was glad about Rajnikanth’s nod to making a Chandramukhi spin-off.

The filmmaker added that practical difficulties made him shelve the idea of that spin-off, and come up with Darbar's script instead. The director also realised the technical difficulties that could come up while getting the rights of the film from Sivaji Productions and P Vasu. Hence, the Ghajini director then decided to shelve the film and started working on Rajinikanth starrer Darbar.
