After Trisha, It’s Amitabh Bachchan For Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan!

The cast keeps getting bigger!

A Mani Ratnam film is one of the most anticipated movies for every film lover. He is a master-craftsman and usually takes time to give out a terrific output making sure the audience experiences a wonderful film. When the Thalapathy director announced that he will be making a film of Tamil literature’s classic Ponniyin Selvan, speculations began on whom he would be casting in his film. Until now, we know that the confirmed names are Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Keerthy Suresh, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Chiyaan Vikram, Parthiepan, Arav Ravi and then Ashwin Kakumanu.

Trisha was the last to join this stellar cast. The 96 actress replaced Nayanthara’s place in the film and joining her is none other than India’s legendary actor, the one and only Amitabh Bachchan. The actor is not only known for his brilliant acting but also for his versatility. His terrific performance in Sye Raa only goes to show that age is just a number. Language is no barrier to this legendary actor.

Mani Ratnam is currently busy with the pre-production of the film. The film’s first schedule is touted to go on floors from the 12th of December in Thailand.

Apart from Aarav, the last break news from the sources close to the team was that it is not Nayanthara but Trisha who will now be a part of this three-part magnum opus. Trisha’s last film with the ace director was the blockbuster Ayudha Ezhuthu.

However, Mani Ratnam has been holding back all the required announcements since he has always believed in complete preparation before he kickstarts. He is currently planning various training sessions and activities for the actors and his team as a part of his pre-production preps.

An official announcement is soon to come!

The film is being bankrolled by Lyca productions and will have two parts much like the Bahubali series.

Trisha, on the other hand, is currently shooting for Raangi, Sugar alongside Simran and Paramapadam Vilayattu. She has also signed two other big films like the one with Mohanlal in Jeethu Joseph’s next and is also getting her big break in Tollywood after years alongside Megastar Chiranjeevi in Koratala Siva’s next produced by his son Ram Charan and Niranjan Reddy.
