Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan is all set for its grand theatrical release this Friday and we are just two days away from witnessing this historical epic on the big screen. The film has got sky high expectations and the advance bookings look terrific. Ponniyin Selvan is already a blockbuster on the cards, looking at the bookings and the team is quite elated with the pre-release buzz. Chiyaan Vikram, Karthi, Trisha, Jayam Ravi, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan play the lead roles in this magnum opus that features an ensemble supporting cast including the likes of Sarath Kumar, Prakash Raj, Parthiban, Rahman, Prabhu, Lal, Jayaram, Kishore, Vikram Prabhu, Arjun Chidambaram, Sobhita Dhulipala, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sarah Arjun, Jaya Chitra, and others.

Among the lot, Parthiban has revealed some important details about his character and his tweet regarding the same has gone viral among the fans. Parthiban will be playing the character of Chinna Pazhuvettaraiyar and as the name of the character suggests, Parthiban has confirmed that he will be present in the film only for a limited screen time, more like an extended cameo.

Sharing a picture of him from the sets of Ponniyin Selvan, Parthiban tweeted, "சோழ தேசம் நோக்கி… பொ.செ-வில் நான் வரும் காட்சிகள் சொற்பமே. என் பாத்திரத்தின் பெயரிலேயே’சின்ன’உள்ளது. எனவே …. எதிர்பார்ப்பே இல்லாமல் ஒரு சரித்திர பதிவு,மாபெறும் முயற்சி, வெற்றி பெற என்னால் இயன்ற Promotional குதிரை சவாரி". Let’s celebrate PS-1. Well, so it looks like Parthiban's screen time in Ponniyin Selvan 1 is limited.

Considering the humongous volume of the original source, such things tend to happen. Ponniyin Selvan has been made into two parts and the first part will be releasing this Friday. The second part is expected to release in May or June 2023. Bankrolled by Lyca Productions in association with Madras Talkies, the film has music composed by A.R.Rahman whose songs have turned out to be widely popular, finding a place in the playlists of music lovers.
