The film industry has been actively leveraging the immersive and innovative power of augmented reality to drive intrigue and fan engagement in the run-up to launch. For the release of Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan, Snapchat is introducing an AR motion poster lens created by Snap Lens Network Ambassador Kavin Kumar from Coimbatore for this movie. The lens brings the grand poster alive through 2.5D animation where users can scan the poster and the elements of the poster will come alive. Commenting on this innovative movie promotion, Ponniyin Selvan director Mani Ratnam said "I had read the book a long time ago when I was in school. I was fascinated by it even then. It is meant to be up there, on the big screen. The way Kalki writes, it feels like he is personally narrating the story to you. It’s vivid, the spectacle is there in front of you.”
This historical epic, which features an ensemble cast like Aishwarya Rai, Vikram, Karthi, Trisha Krishnan, Jayam Ravi along with Sobhita Dhulipala, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Prabhu, Prakash Raj, Jayaram among others, has already captured people' attention with its aesthetically created trailer and captivating soundtrack.
