We've released Ponniyin Selvan Part 1 in Telugu states under our banner and it was a big success. Under our banner, we are now releasing PS2 (Ponniyin Selvan Part 2). This is a film directed by Mani Ratnam garu and produced by Subaskaran. This multi-starrer film stars Vikram garu, Karthi garu, Jayam Ravi garu, Aishwarya Rai garu, Trisha garu, and many others. I send my best wishes to the entire team. A.R. Rahman composed the music for the PS2, which is currently creating sensation."

There are many differences between previous and current Hyderabad. However, the audience has remained unchanged. The same energy, passion, and love for cinema. We are here to express our gratitude to everyone. We believe that, like Part 1, this will be a huge success. Mani Ratnam has a brave heart. That's why he shot the film in two parts at the same time and released them six months apart.
Regarding Subaskaran's bravery, MGR garu attempted to make Ponniyin Selvan's film. But he couldn't, and this man made it in two parts. I am a big fan of Aishwarya Rai garu. Love you Vikram Anna. I wish everyone had a friend like Karthi. Because without him it would have been difficult for me to make this film. Thanks to Trisha's sister.

Aishwarya Rai said, "I am extremely happy with the Telugu audience's response to Ponniyin Selvan 1. See you all on April 28th in theatres. Mani Ratnam deserves all the credit. I've learned a lot from him on my journey with him from Iruvar to now. I've had the good fortune to work with an outstanding team of people. With the unwavering support of producer Subaskaran, we were able to create a fantastic magical world. I had the opportunity to work with great actors and technicians. We worked extremely hard. Every moment will be enjoyed by the audience."

This film is a golden moment in our film careers for all of us. We learned a lot. The friends I've made here for the rest of my life. Vikram garu taught me how to work. When they say shot ready, he comes to set with double the energy, no matter how tired he is. Jayam Ravi is also a good friend. On set, he makes everyone laugh.
I'm grateful for the Trisha, Lekshmi, and Sobhita support on sets. We've all been through a lot. Thank you, Subaskaran garu, for making such a great film. My mentor was Mani Ratnam garu. My film journey started with his blessings. Thanks for the love he shows. We shot both parts simultaneously. PS1 is entertainment and PS2 is a classic Movie is. "The audience here knows better than me what Mani Ratnam garu's movie will be like," he said.
Chiyaan Vikram said, "The Telugu audience has incredible energy. We travelled to many places to promote this film. However, the love found here is on another level. PS1 was a huge success in Telugu. Now I'd like to show the same affection for PS2. Subaskaran deserves credit. I consider myself fortunate to be working under his auspices. Mani Ratnam is an absolute genius. I'd like to make a hundred films with him. Despite the fact that I did not appear in many scenes with the cast in this film, they became good friends of mine. Karthi, Ravi, Trisha, and Aishwarya are good friends of mine."
Ace director Mani Ratnam said, "When discussing Ponniyin Selvan, we must first thank the producer Subaskaran. He was crucial in making this film a reality. However, SS Rajamouli is the reason for making it in two parts. Thank you very much. I couldn't have shot Ponniyin Selvan in two parts if he hadn't also done Baahubali in two parts. I told Rajamouli about it as well. He has made a significant contribution to the film industry. Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Vikram, Aishwarya Rai, Trisha, Shobhita, Aishwarya Lakshmi, Thota Tarani, Sreekar Prasad, and Rahman were all part of a fantastic team. Only because of their help was I able to make this film great. The audience will undoubtedly enjoy PS2 when it is released in theatres on April 28
