Sivakarthikeyan said, “People have been comparing that scene to Baahubali. I am really happy and there couldn’t be a better credit and comparison to that scene. Because Baahubali is a movie which had a huge impact on Indian cinema. So if we had created a single shot similar to that then we are really proud of it”



About the King’s role, Sivakarthikeyan said, “I am really happy and proud to act as a Tamil king. I have read a lot about Tamil Kings but I had never imagined myself as one. I had to change it a lot. I was sporting a long hairdo and a large beard one time. That getup is for this portion only. During that period, many asked me whether I am sick or something. I couldn’t reveal about the getup at that time”




Speaking about the preparation done for the historic portion, He added, “We took Soori as a reference as has a fit body. Then we decided to gain more weight so that it suits the crown and the armor.  And we did it in just 20 days. The look is very important so that I will confident to do the role. So I thought if we did that, then the rest of the team will take care of the other important aspects. Thanks to Ponram sir for giving me the opportunity to portray a Tamil King. I was really happy to spell out particular dialogues in that portion. It's a rare thing to get. And to see yourself go back 100 years and do a character is a gift.”
