Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus, Ponniyin Selvan is one of the most awaited movies in Tollywood at the moment. Adding to the buzz, the makers have given an insight into their world. Today, they dropped the first look of Prakash Raj as Sundara Chozhar, Jayachitra as Sembiyan Maadevi, and Rahman as Madhurantakan from the historical drama. While all of them are dressed in historical looks, there is one thing in common- a determination, which is palpable in their eyes.
Posting the short clip on Twitter, producers Lyca Productions wrote, “Every rose has its thorns. The Emperor, the Queen Mother, and the Son who wants it all! Meet @prakashraa as Sundara Chozhar, Jayachitra as Sembiyan Maadevi and @actorrahman as Madhurantakan! 2 days to go for the Grand audio and trailer launch of #PS1!! #PonniyinSelvan.”
The makers also posted the character look of Sobhita Dhulipala as Vanathi from the upcoming historical drama today. The Made In Heaven actress was a sight-to-behold in a royal look with an embellished saree and enchanting gold jewelry. The movie’s cast also includes some big-wigs like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Nandini, Vikram as Aditya Karikalan, Karthi as Vanthiyathevan, Trisha as Kundavai, and Jayam Ravi as Arunmozhi Varman. Over and above this, Sarathkumar, Prabhu, Lal, Kishore, Ashwin Kakumanu, and Aishwarya Lekshmi will also be seen in other crucial roles in the flick, along with others.
Jointly produced by Mani Ratnam and Allirajah Subaskaran under the banners of Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions, Ponniyin Selvan is inspired by Kalki Krishnamurthy’s novel of the same name. It will narrate the tale of Rajaraja Chola I from the Chola dynasty.
