Has anyone else been approached for the role of Nandini in Ponnayan Selvan’s film? When asked by the reporter.. he said yes. Earlier senior actress Rekha was considered for this role. I did not consider any other actors for this role. In 1994, Ponniyan Selvan tried to make it. But could not. He said that I thought of senior actress Rekha first for this role. But it is known that Rajini said at Ponniyan Selvan’s pre-release event that he thought of Rekha as the heroine in the role of Nandini. The film is being made based on the novel Ponniyan Selvan written by famous poet Kalki Krishnamurthy. AR Rahman is giving music for this movie.
