The upcoming period drama is based on the eponymous Tamil novel by Kalki, which was serialized in the 1950s and has remained a reader favorite ever since. The film’s plot is set against the backdrop of the 10th century and features the power struggles in the Chola Empire as their enemies begin to act as catalysts. The film follows the period before River Kaveri’s son, Pnniyin Selvan, who would later become Rajaraja Chola, one of the greatest emperors in Indian history.

While Mani Ratnam worked on the film for years, Ponnyyin Selvan is jointly funded by Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies. The film will be released in two parts. Academy Award-winning musician AR Rahman scored the film’s music, while Ravi Varman handled its cinematography. The film would be filled with stellar technicians who worked with Mani Ratnam. The makers of the film have also promised more news and updates regarding the film in the coming week.
