Ponniyin Selvan is a classic historic-fictional novel by Kalki - which was long overdue to be adapted into the silver screen. Many directors dreamt of adapting this novel into a movie for almost 60 years, which includes MGR and Barathiraja.

Mani Ratnam, however, started the pre-production of the movie many years back with Vijay in the lead, but stopped the movie halfway due to financial constraints. Now Mani Ratnam has finally kick-started the mega-project once again despite the delay caused by the current pandemic.

Jayam Ravi has signed to play the lead role 'Arulmozhi Varman' who will later become the unstoppable Raja Raja Cholan I. Meanwhile, the multicast movie will also feature famous artists such as Vikram, Karthi, Vikram Prabhu, Radhika, Sarath Kumar, Aishwarya Rai, Prakash Raj and many others.

Sethupathi's child star Raaghavan will also be playing a prominent role in the movie. Check out his updates from the shooting location here:
