Ponniyin Selvan TamilRockers new Tamil historical drama film written and directed by Mani Ratnam and produced by Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies. It is an adaptation of a novel based on the historical period of Kalki Krishnamurthy.
The film must consist of two parts. It is produced by Reliance Entertainment, the successor to Chekka Chivantha Vaanam from Mani Ratnam.
Ponniyin Selvan Movie Story Line
Ponniyin Selvan, the dream project of Mani Ratnam, is progressing rapidly in Thailand. While writing, Ratnam would advise the writer Jeyamohan to write a dialogue so that the words used are in the old Tamil language, but today’s younger generation should understand their meaning. Selvaraghavan’s dialogue in the Aayirathil Oruvan era surprised many young people because they no longer use old Tamil in their daily communication.
Aishwarya Rai, recently featured in Fanney Khan (2018), has officially confirmed that Mani Ratnam is part of the major adaptation of the famous novel by Kalki Ponniyin Selvan. It reported that the film shot in the 10th century and that Aishwarya considered Nandini, the wife of Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar.
‘Ponniyin Selvan‘ is based on the story of a novel by Kalki Krishnamurthy with Chiyaan Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai, Trisha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Aishwarya Rajesh, Jayaram, Sarathkumar, Sarathkatha Lekshmi and Rahman in the lead roles.

The soundtrack was composed by A. R. Rahman and marks the 15th collaboration with Mani Ratnam in 27 years. Cinematography directed by Ravi Varman, the favorite of Mani Ratnam and fiction by Sreekar Prasad.
Filming began in Thailand last week with parts from Jayam Ravi, Karthi and Aishwarya Lekshmi. The team will see Vikram, Trisha and Aishwarya Rai last year.
A photo shoot for the film held in Chennai, seven days before the scheduled recording schedule. The team asked officials from Mysore Palace and Lalitha Mahal to view the photo shoot. His request, however, rejected by court officials who wanted the film crews to stay away from historic locations.
