The next epic historical film Ponniyin Selvan: I, directed by Mani Ratnam, will star Trisha Krishnan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Despite the fact that their characters in the film are at odds, the two actors got along well, which gave the director some trouble. In a recent interview, Trisha claimed that the director had to demand that they act less pleasantly at work.
The actress said that working with Aishwarya was enjoyable and that everyone was amazed by her fluency in Tamil. She was certain that everyone in the room and everyone who had worked with her would agree that she is incredibly friendly and one of the most devoted performers one could partner with. She used Tamil in a modest manner, as it should be. She would get up with the others at two in the morning to prepare as well.
"I, happily, got to meet her and engage with her on day one of my shoots," Trisha said in an interview with NDTV. I don't even need to remark that she is stunning on the inside and out. The problem is that despite the fact that we got along brilliantly on set, we are not supposed to like each other all that much in this movie. Mani Sir would occasionally appear and remark, "Listen, you people are taking too much, stop talking, I can't have this camaraderie for my scenario."
Ponniyin Selvan: I is based on the Kalki Krishnamurthy book of the same name. The film also stars Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Lekshmi, and Sobhita Dhulipala. Aishwarya plays Nandini, the antagonist, and Trisha plays Kundavai, the Chola princess. In the story, the two characters don't get along.
Ponniyin Selvan: I will be released in Tamil on September 30 in addition to dubbed versions in Hindi, Kannada, Telugu, and Malayalam. It was produced on a significant budget and is the first Tamil film to be released in IMAX format.
