Superstar Rajnikanth attended the grand trailer launch of the film as the chief guest of honour. Speaking to the press he shared how he had imagined late actor Sridevi in the role of Kundavai when he first read the script. He said, "When I read the story, I imagined Kamal as Arulmozhivarman, Sridevi as Kundavai, Vijaykanth as Aditya Karikalan, and Sathyaraj as Pazhuvettaraiyar." He also shared how he longed to be a part of the film but to his surprise, Mani Ratnam rejected his request. He shared, "I wanted to be a part of #PS1 somehow, so I asked Mani sir if I can play Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar. He denied the offer saying my fans would not be happy. Anyone else would have taken it, but Mani denied it and this is what makes him unique."
