But at the same time, lot of people started saying that the film portrays history of Cholas in a wrong sense.

If we allow someone to mishandle it, our own identities will be easily looted away from us. Earlier they tried giving a saffron color to the famous Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar. Now they are trying to make Raja Raja Cholan as a Hindu King. They started this process with arts and literature initially. Now it is happening in cinema as well. It is our duty to protect our identities. In order to do so, we should have good clarity in politics."

      People started connecting Vetrimaaran's speech with Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan 1.
