One of the most awaited movies of Kollywood is the upcoming film of Mani Ratnam, Ponniyin Selvan. Based on an epic Tamil novel Ponniyin Selvan by Amarar Kalki, the film has an ensemble of star cast including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha Krishnan, Chiyaan Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi among others. While some actors have revealed that they are part of the film, it has not yet been revealed who would be seen playing which character. Aishwarya Rai had revealed in an earlier interview that she will have a negative role in the film, which has made it clear that she will be seen as Nandini Devi in the film.

It can also be guessed that Trisha Krishnan will be seen as Kundavai Nachiyar as it is one of the key roles in the Tamil novel. However, it is not known as to who will play the lead character, Ponniyin Selvan aka Arunmozhi Varmar aka Raja Raja Chola. It could be anyone from the three male leads and the fans of the Tamil novel are going gaga over guessing would be seen as their beloved king raja Raja Chola. So far, many others have revealed on social media that they would be seen in the film.

Celebrities including Arjun Kakumanu, Ashwin Saravanan, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Mohan Raman, Sobhita Dhulipala, Jayaram, Riyaz Khan will be seen playing key roles in the film. Jointly produced by Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies, Ponniyin Selvan has Abhiyum Naanum fame Kumaravel and Mani Ratnam co-writing the project. The film went on floors on December 13, 2019, in Thailand. Currently, the shooting process has been brought to a halt due to the ongoing crisis of COVID-19 pandemic. The makers have wrapped up the first shooting schedule in Thailand and it is expected that the shooting will be resumed as soon as the lockdown is lifted.

Very true... Age may just number but aged people cant bring the soul to the character.. Aditi, aishwarya rai, aishwarya lekshmi, sobhitha may be good in acting but none can be apt to tamil princesses... crying face aditi cant bring expression to vanathi role, she can only show crying face, no face expressions... Disgusting to hear sobhitha is in, who acted in condom ad vulgarly for tamil princess role... totally worst cast selection
