Some film projects are difficult to make and even stalwarts have tried and given up while wanting to adapt Kalki Krishnamurthi’s celebrated novel, Ponniyin Selvan, one of its kind with no possible parallels!

It is said that even the late evergreen matinee idol of Kollywood, M.G.R.,  wanted to make the novel into a film but his dream never got fructified!

It has always been a dream for Manirathnam to make a film out of the novel and it was quite a while ago that the project was announced with a slightly different cast!

Changes crept in as Manirathnam reshuffled the cast and finally went ahead and launched and the Teaser is already out!

The cast comprises of big names as Aiswarya Rai, Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Shobhita Dulipala, Vikram Prabhu, Jayaram, Jayachitra, Makrand Despande etc.

The magnum opus is scheduled for a grand gala theatrical release on 30th September 2022 in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi.
