PS: 1 is a dream come true not just for Vikram but also for Mani Rathnam. Vikram shared many details about the film and also his admiration for the filmmaker at the promotional event. He said,“Ponniyin Selvan is a lot of my dreams coming together. When I started acting in movies, I had seen Roja (1992), Bombay (1995), Nayakan (1987) and I wanted to be a part of Mani sir’s films. I was in college that time and I had a classmate who was his cousin and I became friends with him for the same reason (laughs). I would always keep asking him about Mani sir as that’s the kind of impact he had on me.”

Speaking about having a heroic entry in the film he said, “I wanted a nice role who makes his entry on a bike with nice background music and I had told this to Mani sir… something like Maddy’s (actor R Madhavan) entry scene in Alai Payuthey (2000). But Mani sir disappointed me as he threw me into the muck [in Raavanan] (laughs). This time around, he told me I am going to be a prince, so I was like wow. But he added that I’ll be battling and hence, be covered in muck. I had to be rugged, crude and barbaric sorts. Eka (costume designer) would make the most amazing costumes and despite being a prince, I had to roll in the sand and get ready for the shot,” he shared.

“But we also saw my entry in the trailer, which for me is my personal best shot in any film. I don’t think I will be able to have that shot again nor will I have that hairstyle again (laughs). But coming as a prince on a horse in the introduction scene is ‘the’ shot for me. I think that’s enough and I don’t think I need anything more.”

When asked about sharing screen space with Aishwarya again, the Iru Mugan (2016) actor laughed and said, “I’m working with Ash again after Ravaanan. I play a tragic hero who never gets Ash in the end. Let’s see what happens in PS:1.” The film will hit the theatres on September 30.
