Voice: It has been director Mani Ratnam's dream to adapt Tamil literary novel Ponniyin Selvan into films. Ponniyin Selvan is produced by Lyca Productions and has an ensemble cast including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Chiyaan Vikram, Trisha, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sobhita Dhulipala, Vikram Prabhu, Prakash Raj and Prabhu among others. The shooting of Ponniyin Selvan resumed in Hyderabad once the Central government eased Covid-19 restrictions. Recently costume designer Eka Lakhani took to Instagram to reveal that a big schedule of the film has been completed.
Sharing the photo, Eka Lakhani wrote, "And one of the team with big boss himself! #ManiSir. Wrapping this monster of a sched with a full heart... Phew!!! Can’t believe we pulled this off in the COVID time.Thank you for all the support my girls! You guys kicked ass! Missing in the pic CK, our backbone and UB, our oxygen! Now for some sleep, spa time and lots of champagne! (sic)." The big-budget film will have music scored by AR Rahman. Reportedly, the film will have 12 songs and the makers are yet to confirm the same.
