The notice has reportedly been sent by a lawyer called Selvam. The reason stated was because Vikram’s character Adithya Karikalan has been portrayed with a Tilak in the posters, but he is seen without one in the teaser. Therefore, there has been concern that there might me a misrepresentation of the Cholas in the film. This has been raised as a subject of concern as the film will be considered a representation of history for the future generations, and therefore the characters should not be portrayed incorrectly.
The lawyer also urged for social screening ahead of release so check if historical facts have been accurately represented in the film. Mani Ratnam, Chiyaan Vikram or the makers are yet to respond to the issue. Meanwhile, Jayam Ravi is said to play Arun Mozhi Varman, while Trisha is said to play his sister Kundavai. Karthi will be seen as Vantiya thevan, while Aishwarya Rai will be ‘Nandini’. Jayaram, Prakash Raj, Lal and Kishore will be playing prominent roles.
The film is bankrolled by Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies. The music director for the movie is AR Rahman. PS-1 is slated for a worldwide release on September 30, 2022, in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
