Chiyaan Vikram, who plays the Chola crown prince Aditha Karikalan has simply nailed the scene in which his character confronts Periya Pazuvettaraiyar, played by senior actor R Sarath Kumar and his allies. The National award-winning actor portrayed the emotional outburst of his character to near perfection, all thanks to his highly expressive eyes and brilliant voice modulation. This scene is definitely going to be one of the high points of the film.

Jayam Ravi, who plays Arunmozhi Varman aka the future Raja Raja Chola, has made a mark in the fantastic trailer of Ponniyin Selvan 2 with his brilliant re-entry scene. The prince, who is speculated to be dead, is very much alive and is seen at the Buddha Viharam in Kodikarai amidts the monks. Next, he is seen performing a couple of well-choreographed action sequences, which are definitely going to be stellar visual experiences on the big screen. 

4. Oomai Rani aka Mandakini Devi's entry

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's most-awaited second get-up from the Mani Ratnam directorial as Oomai Rani aka Mandakini Devi was vaguely revealed at the climax portions of Ponniyin Selvan I. However, the Ponniyin Selvan 2 official trailer has finally provided the much-awaited first glimpse of the character, which is going to lead the story in a big way in the second part. Aishwarya, as always, looks absolutely stunning even in the get-up of the elderly woman. The celebrated actress's portrayal of two different characters that are poles apart, is definitely going to be a treat to watch.


5. Aditha Karikalan and Nandini's spine-chilling face-off

The end portions of the Ponniyin Selvan 2 trailer show the spine-chilling face-off scene between Aditha Karikalan and Nandini, played by Chiyaan Vikram and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, respectively. Nandini, who wows to kill Karikalan, is seen pointing the Pandya king's sword at his chest, while he looks at her longingly. The unrequited love of the Chola crown price is truly heartbreaking to watch, and we are sure that Vikram and Aishwarya are set to steal the show with their performances in this scene.
