Jayam Ravi’s Son Joins The Stellar Cast Of Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan!

The cast keeps getting better!

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 and then Ashwin Kakumanu now.

The latest to join the cast would be Jayam Ravi’s son Aarav Ravi and looks like it that the little star would have a pivotal role to play in the film. Aarav debuted with his father’s film Tik Tik Tik and he was an instant favourite much like his father. 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.
