One of the prime attractions of Ponniyin Selvan 1 was the spellbinding performance from Karthi in the role of the swashbuckling Vanthiyathevan. He effortlessly pulled off the ever popular character which was in the dream list of many veteran actors for several decades.

From working as an AD to Mani Ratnam to playing the significant character in a multi-starrer helmed by the filmmaker, the actor says that he has come a long way and cherishes the memories he had while working on the Ponniyin Selvan franchise. 


"My happiness knows no bounds when people appreciated me by saying that I brought life to Vanthiyathevan. I travelled with the team for three years and shared a close bond with my co-stars. Now that we have come to the end of promotions, it feels like a college farewell day," he smiles.

He says that it was a sheer pleasure witnessing Vikram and Jayam Ravi getting into the skin of their respective characters. "I was happy to see Ravi in the role of Arunmozhi Varman. I couldn't stop adoring Vikram sir's dedication. He is someone who is ready to go to any extent to give his full attention to the character he takes up," he says.

According to Karthi, the actors have been sharing a good rapport ever since they started working for this mammoth project. All of them have seen each others' ups and downs during this phase. On his much-talked about chemistry with Trisha, he says that like most of the film buffs, he is also hoping to do a movie which features the two as lead pairs.

The outfits these actors chose while they were on promotional tours in many cities in the country were the talk of the town. He says that they wanted themselves to look the best in their costumes as they were representing Tamil Nadu. "We were taking this film to several states and proudly flaunting it. So, we ensured that out outfits were trendy and catchy," he sums up.
