The Audio and Trailer launch of the film happened in a grand manner yesterday at Nehru Indoor Stadium. All the cast members including Aishwarya Rai and Vikram made an appearance at the event yesterday. Actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan graced the event with their presence and launched the trailer live. Several other stars including Directors Shankar and Gautam Vasudev Menon, and Music composers Yuvan Shankar Raaja and Santosh Narayanan were also present.
Trisha and Aishwarya Rai went on stage to address the audience. Trisha shared that working with Mani Ratnam is an unforgettable experience, and also thanked the director for giving her the role of Kundavai. She then said that she can keep seeing and watching Rajini and Kamal, and that nobody can ever get bored of them. Aishwarya Rai, who was also on stage, said, “Mani Ratnam is my Guru. My film journey started with his Directorial ‘Iruvar’. I have already acted with Rajini. However, I have still not acted with Kamal Haasan. But, I have learnt a lot from both the actors.” She then requested them to continue acting for longer, so that we can always keep watching them.
The film is to be released in 2 parts, and the first part is releasing on September 30th. The final work of the film is currently going on, and the director has reportedly made a final copy of the film. The runtime of the film is apparently 2 hours and 50 minutes or 170 minutes, which is less than several large-scale movies. Probably, Mani Ratnam went for a short and sweet first half, in order to hook the audience with a longer and more detailed second part.
While, Ravi Varman is handling the camera for the film, Sreekhar Prasad is handling the edit and Thotta Tharani is designated with Production Design of the film. 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.
