“Aayirathil Oruvan-2” Poster Controversy !! Mathieu Lauffray Replied ??

A massive announcement on the sequel of Selvaraghavan’s epic historical drama “Aayirathil Oruvan” surfaced on the special day of New year. As the film got re released in some of the prominent theatres of Tamil nadu, it garnered huge reception with fans lauding the intelligence of the filmmaker for making such a intriguing film during 2010. Many fans termed the project as “Magnum Opus” and compared it with Telugu blockbuster period film “Bahubali”.


On the new year day, director Selvaraghavan came up with a tweet and surprised his fans by confirming that Aayirathil Oruvan 2 is in cards. “இது வரை கேட்டிருந்த ,காத்திருந்த என் அன்பு உள்ளங்களுக்கு இதோ உங்கள் முன்னால்” wrote Selva and added a posted by tagging Dhanush to indicate that he is going to play lead in the film.

Through the poster, the duo announced that the film is going to hit the screens during 2024. “A magnum opus !! The pre production alone will take us a year. But a dream film from the master @selvaraghavan! The wait will be long. But we will give our best to make it all worth it. AO2 ..The Prince returns in 2024” said Dhanush in his tweet while sharing the tweet of Selva.


As soon as the poster released, fans started expressing their excitement through their reactions. However, a set of fans pointed out that the poster resembles the art of the cover picture of a book that belongs to French Art director Mathieu Lauffray.

Looking at both the posters, one can identify the similarities as only the background of the original picture was changed in the announcement poster of “Aayurathil Oruvan 2”. Netizens couldn’t keep calm as many memes, reactions and trolls surfaced regarding the plagiarism.


Now, a fan went one step ahead and claimed that he has e-mailed the artist of the original reporting about the poster of Selva and Dhanush. Adding the tweet link of Dhanush, the twitter user named “Kannan”, claims that he sent a mail to Mathieu Lauffrey, writing “Looks like the poster art ripped your Tarzan concept art. Was it approved and available for sale?”

The screenshot Kannan added shows Mathieu saying that he is not at all aware of the poster of Aayirathil Oruvan 2. “I was not at all aware of this, so no, they did not ask and they do not have the right to use my drawing for their poster or any other use.” the reply read.

Here’s the screenshot of the reply :
