Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan, on Saturday, released an interesting motion poster of the film. Set to release in two parts, the first part will open in cinemas on September 30 in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.

The magnum opus boasts of a stellar cast including Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sarath Kumar, Vikram Prabhu, Sobhita Dhulipala, Jayaram, Prabhu, Parthiban, and Prakash Raj. It is based on Kalki Krishnamurthy’s eponymous Tamil novel that was serialised in the 1950s.

Take a look at the new motion poster:

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to make her comeback on the silver screen with Ponniyin Selvan 1.

Aishwarya, who has previously worked with Ratnam in films like Iruvar, Guru and Raavan, in an interview said doesn’t have to think much before saying yes to the filmmaker.

“It is definitely an experience I’m looking forward to for multiple reasons. Mani is my guru and he is one of the most amazing and brilliant directors of our country. I’ve had the honour, privilege and joy of working with him right in the beginning of my career and several times later. It’s an easy yes to work with that kind of cinematic brilliance,” the actress says.

Here's her first look picture:

According to reports, Ponniyin Selvan 1 is an adventure ride set in the 10th century, Ponniyin Selvan tracks the factional power struggles within the Chola Empire, with enemies of the state acting as catalysts. The story is set in the tumultuous period before Ponniyin Selvan (son of River Kaveri), later known as Rajaraja Chola became one of the greatest emperors in Indian history ushering in a golden age.

AR Rahman has scored the music for the film. With Ravi Varman handling the cinematography and Thota Tharrani as Production Designer and Sreekar Prasad as Editor, the film is filled with stellar technicians working alongside the veteran director Mani Ratnam.

Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions promise more updates and news on the film in the coming week.
