The teaser launch of Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan was held in Chennai recently for which the entire star cast was present. However, Vikram who plays Aditya Karikalan in the period drama, couldn't make it to the occasion as the actor was admitted in hospital after he developed a slight discomfort in his chest. Though many reports stated that the actor had had a heart attack, the hospital authorities denied the same. Vikram, who was later discharged from the hospital, attended the audio launch of his upcoming Cobra yesterday. He also took a dig at certain reports that exaggerated his health condition and belted out fabricated news. 

And now, the makers of Ponniyin Selvan have come up with a special announcement for Chiyaan Vikram fans. The team shared a new poster from the film and stated that if they had missed the Crown Prince at the event, they have something special coming up tomorrow. The production house wrote on its social media handle, "Missed the Crown Prince at the event? We have something special for you! Tomorrow at 5 PM #PS1Teaser #PonniyinSelvanTeaser #PonniyinSelvan#PS1 releasing in theatres on 30th September. @LycaProductions #ManiRatnam @arrahman #Vikram @Tipsofficial (sic)."

Vikram's character poster was the first one to be released by the Ponniyin Selvan team. The actor was introduced as the Crown Prince Aditya Karikalan of the Chola dynasty in the adaptation of Kalki Krishnamurthy's epic historical novel, Ponniyin Selvan. Vikram looks like a fierce warrior in the first-look poster. The makers had then written on their social media page, "Welcome the Chola Crown Prince! The Fierce Warrior. The Wild Tiger. Aditya Karikalan! #PS1 @madrastalkies_ #ManiRatnam (sic)."

The film has an ensemble star cast comprising Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha, Prabhu, Parthiban, Jayaram, Sarath Kumar, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Vikram Prabhu and Sobhita Dhulipala. The first part from the two-series film will release worldwide in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi on September 30.
