The star-studded magnum opus, which started filming in December 2019, features actors Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Karthi, Trisha Krishnan, Prakash Raj, Jayaram, Jayam Ravi and Aishwarya Lekshmi among others.
''Ponniyin Selvan'' is backed by Ratnam's production house Madras Talkies and Allirajah Subaskaran's banner Lyca Productions.
The film's production wrap announcement was made on the official Instagram page of Madras Talkies. ''Filming complete. PS-1 coming soon!'' the post read. The movie is based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's 1955 Tamil novel ''Ponniyin Selvan''.
The latest is that the film has been wrapped up in Pollachi with Vanthiyathevan’s song. The makers released an announcement poster of a Chola sword almost similar to that of the previous designs. They have also announced that the film will hit the screens in the summer of 2022. The huge star ensemble commonly described Ponniyin Selvan. “This is a film of a lifetime and we wonder if we would land such a film again ever. We are excited to watch ourselves on the big screen,” said the stars.
Ponniyin Selvan-1 will hit the screens in the summer of 2022.
