On Tuesday, Lyca Productions, which bankrolls the movie, took to Twitter and released actor Karthi's poster for the movie. The production company wrote, "The Prince without a kingdom, the spy, the swashbuckling adventurer...here comes Vanthiyathevan."
Actor Karthi wrote, "With all your blessings bringing to you Vanthiyathevan and Semban (the horse)." The movie has been split into two as the first part has been named PS-1 (Ponniyin Selvan - 1) and the first part has been slated for theatrical release on September 30, 2022. Karthi's poster has been going viral as the fans are rampantly spreading it even as they express their eagerness to relish what has been a dream project of Kollywood.
On Monday - July 4, the movie team has unveiled the character poster of actor Vikram, who will be playing the role of 'Aditya Karikalan'. One of the fierce characters in the original novel, Aditya Karikalan is the elder brother of Raja Raja Cholan aka Arul Mozhi Varman, played by Jayam Ravi. Vikram is seen sporting a brave and victorious look, majestically sitting on a horse on the battlefield, as storming arrows behind the actor.
Taking to Twitter, Lyca Productions, which bankrolls the movie, has released the poster of Vikram and wrote, "Welcome the Chola Crown Prince! The Fierce Warrior. The Wild Tiger. Aditya Karikalan." This poster has taken social media into a storm as several fans have shared it rampantly.
