“@Karthi_Offl Happy bday! Always love it when you give back to make good cinema!! #Meiyazhagan #மெய்யழகன்,” Suriya captioned his post on X (formerly Twitter).

One of the posters shows Karthi looking into the eyes of a bull and grinning. The second poster, shared by Suriya, features Karthi on a bicycle with Arvind Swami.

The posters were also shared by Karthi, who decoded the meaning of the title in his caption. “#Meiyazhagan= Meiy+Azhagan Beauty is always what’s in our hearts. #மெய்யழகன்,” read the actor’s note on X.

Meiyazhagan marks C. Prem Kumar’s return to the director’s chair after six years since the release of 2018’s ‘96. Govind Vasantha will be composing the music for the Karthi and Arvind Swamy-starrer.
