Chiyaan Vikram's character look poster from Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan was officially unveiled yesterday (July 4) and it instantly grabbed the attention of film buffs and fans. Vikram looked majestic and royal as the fearless wild tiger, Aditya Karikalan and the poster opened to a favourable response. Following that, the makers have now released the next character look poster and this one introduces Karthi as Vanthiyathevan and it looks solid. Karthi looks charismatic and he seems to have aced the character of Vanthiyathevan in style. Vanthiyathevan is one of the most powerful and exciting characters in the Ponniyin Selvan novel and it is going to be interesting to see how Karthi has approached the character.
