It is not clear yet if he is playing multiple roles like he did in Mersal, or if the poster depicts different stages in the life of the same character. The first look featured an older Vijay with speckles of grey in his hair sports a menacing look with an ‘aruval’ at his feet, while the youngster avatar is seen behind him tossing a Manchester United football casually.
Unlike the first one, the second look poster has four different get ups of the actor. As two of the looks are already revealed in the first look poster,one of the other two looks shows Vijay donning a suit with a travel bag in his shoulder and the other one shows him wearing a jersey which is printed as “Michael” behind it.

As soon as the poster released, many fans and celebrities got excited and wished the film to be a massive success. Meanwhile a news got surfaced on twitter about the 2nd look poster’s background text content.
Apart from the texts “AND THE NAME IS”, if we look close to the second look poster we can witness a long passage about being a coach written in English language. The statement which starts from “Pride is an emotion..” has a long message about being a coach. Check it out here :
The whole content is reportedly copied from a Wikipedia result of the search word Coach according to a twitter account named as Ajith Facts. Earlier Director Atlee was caught in controversy for a number of times among fans for copying contents from old epic movies. All of his three movies are compared with earlier movie’s of legendary director Maniratnam. Even he caught in controversy once for copying caption to wish Director Shankar on teacher’s day. Atlee Wished Shankar For Teacher’s Day & Got Brutally Trolled For Copying The Caption !!
