A post shared by LAL (@lal_director) on

Lal took to Instagram and wrote, "In my entire acting career, Maniratnam sir is the only person, to whom I have asked for an opportunity. As I knew Suhasini, I asked for a chance to act in Maniratnam sir's movie. It was years ago. While Maniratnam sir was shooting for 'Kadal', he called me and offered me a role in the movie. Unfortunately due to other prior committed projects, I couldn't take up the offer. And now the dream is going to come true. I am essaying an old warrior in his next. I will be taking horse riding classes for the role. Once a dream, now a reality! A Mani Ratnam movie. #tamilcinema #maniratnam #ponniyinselvan."

Ponniyin Selvan is based on a Tamil novel written by Kalki, which goes by the same name. It was reported earlier that most of the shooting will take place in Thailand forests.
