Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth were the chief guests for this ceremony. On this occasion, Rajini said that he wanted to act in this movie, but director Mani Ratnam said no.
Successful director Mani Ratnam’s most ambitious latest film is Ponniyan Selvan. Tamil star hero Vikram Chian, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai and Trisha are acting in the lead roles, there are already many expectations about this movie. The Golden Age of Cholas is being brought to the audience with this movie. The audience is eagerly waiting for this movie which is Mani Ratnam’s dream project. The trailer release event of this movie was held in Chennai on Tuesday. Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth were the chief guests for this ceremony. On this occasion, Rajini said that he wanted to act in this movie, but director Mani Ratnam said no.
I wanted to be a part of Ponniin Selvan. I asked Mani Ratnam to give me the role of Periya Pajuvettaire. I said I will do it even if it is a small role. But he wants to insult me with your fans? asked. They would agree that anyone else would be fine if I acted in their film.. but Mani did not agree at all. That is Mani Ratnam. In an earlier interview to a magazine, Jayalalitha had said that I will be set for Vanthiyathivan (played by Karthi) in Ponniin Selvan. I read Ponnian Selvan’s book on her words. If writer Kalki were among us.. he would have gone home and bowed to his feet. Ponnayan Selvan is not Arul Molivarman’s story. The story of Nandini (played by Aishwarya Rai). Now a days no one would have seen Nandini’s role. Nandini was the inspiration for Neelambari’s role in Narasimha. Rajini said that after reading this story, I envisioned Kamal Haasan for the role of Arul Molivarman (Jayam Ravi), Sridevi for the role of Kundavai (Trisha) and Vijay Kant for the role of Aditya Karikalan (Vikram).
