According to a report presented by Times of India, Aishwarya Rai along with south beauty Aishwarya Lekshmi have joined Mani Ratnam’s team in Pondicherry for filming their respective portions in the film.

Just a day ago, Aishwarya took to her Instagram space to confirm that the epic fantasy drama will be released in two parts. Apart from Aishwarya Rai, the multi-starrer flick features Vikram, Karthi, Trisha Krishnan, and Prakash Raj in pivotal roles. While sharing the announcement poster, Aishwarya wrote, “The Golden Era comes to Life Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan PS1”.

Talking about the plot of the film, the movie chronicles the tale of one of the most mighty kings in the South. Capturing the early days of Arulmozhivarman, Ponniyin Selvan narrates how the powerful king went on to achieve the title of great Chola emperor Rajaraja Chola I. Bankrolled under the banner of Madras Talkies in collaboration with Lyca Productions, the background music of the film is scored by Oscar-winner AR Rahman.
