Ponniyin Selvan, the dream project of the Guru of Indian cinema, Mani Ratnam, is the most awaited film not only in Kollywood but across India. There is a lot of hype for the film right from its production in 2019. The film is based on a novel with the same title, penned by Ramaswamy Krishnamurthy, aka Kalki. The story of Ponniyin Selvan deals with the rule of the Chola dynasty in India, as known from the novel. The film was mounted on a large scale, touching a mark of about 500 crores. The film’s cast is also very large, including Vikram, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai, Trisha, Jayam Ravi, Sobitha Dhulipala, and others. The film’s release date was announced to be September 30, and so the film unit started promoting the film 2 months prior to the release, that is, in July. As a part of the promotions, the makers of Ponniyin Selvan started releasing the character looks of the main cast in the film.
The first look poster of Chiyaan Vikram from Ponniyin Selvan has been released. Vikram played the role of Aditya Karikalan. Vikram was seen sitting on a horse with a majestic look and a proud smile on his face. The creators described Aditya Karikalan as a fierce warrior and a wild tiger. The makers also started revealing the character looks of the film with the tagline, “The Cholas are coming.”
