Ponniyin Selvan, the highly anticipated historical drama helmed by veteran filmmaker Mani Ratnam, is finally hitting the theatres tomorrow. The movie, which is based on Kalki Krishnamurthy’s 1974-released novel of the same name, features a stellar star cast including Chiyaan Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha Krishnan, Karthi, and Jayam Ravi. As you may know, Mani Ratnam waited for over three decades to make Ponniyin Selvan, which he calls his ‘dream project.’ Ahead of the release, Trisha Krishnan took to her official Instagram handle and thanked her director.

Trisha, who plays the role of Ilaya Piratti Kundavai Devi in Ponniyin Selvan, posted a BTS picture with Mani Ratnam and thanked him for the opportunity. “Kundavai and her maker. Thank you Mani sir for it all. See you in the theatres. 30.9.2022,” reads the gorgeous actress’s post. In the first picture, Trisha Krishnan and director Mani Ratnam are seen posing for a picture at the location. She is seen in a maroon outfit and Kundavai’s signature high bun in the picture. The actress also shared another picture of her character Kundavai, in a white silk outfit.

For the uninitiated, Trisha Krishnan’s character in Ponniyin Selvan, Kundavai Devi, has been considered one of the strongest female characters ever made in the history of Tamil literature. The Chozha princess, who is the sister of Aditya Karikalan and Arunmozhi Varman aka Ponniyin Selvan, is described as a woman of extraordinary intelligence and courage.

Coming to Ponniyin Selvan star cast, Chiyaan Vikram is appearing as the vulnerable crown prince, Aditya Karikalan. Jayam Ravi essays the role of Arunmozhi Varman, the young prince who shows desires and a different life. Karthi, on the other hand, is playing Vallavaraiyan Vanthiyathevan, the orphaned prince of the Vana clan and Kundavai’s love interest. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is making her comeback to Tamil cinema, by playing a double role as the lead antagonist Nandini and Mandakini.
