Ponniyin Selvan: Trisha Krishnan Discloses she Attempted Over 50 Looks For Mani Ratnam's Epic Work

Trisha Krishnan is super busy right now promoting Ponniyin Selvan, the highly awaited film she is working on. In the Mani Ratnam-directed film, Ilaiya Piratti Kundavai, the well-known actress portrays the title character from the beloved Kalki Krishnamurthy epic novel of the same name. Audiences have taken notice of Trisha's several appearances as the Chola princess in the movie. The stunning actress talked explicitly about finishing her appearance for the movie in a recent interview.

 
For Trisha's role Kundavai, they reportedly tested more than 50 different appearances. “You guys have just seen a couple of Kundavai’s looks from the film. We tried over 50 looks for the film, and later shortlisted around 30 out of them. Later, we picked the best 10 looks from that list, from which Mani Ratnam sir decided what worked for his film. The entire credits for my looks go to Mani sir and the styling team – to Eka Lakhani and her team”, the actress said.
 
Regarding Trisha Krishnan's part in Ponniyin Selvan, she plays Kundavai Devi, the Chola dynasty princess aka Ilaiya Piratti. She is Vanthiyathevan's love interest and the sister of Aditya Karikalan and Arumozhi Varman. According to legend, Kundavai was a courageous and intelligent woman. Initially, several popular actresses were considered for the part, including Nayanthara and Anushka Shetty. However, Trisha eventually agreed to join Mani Ratnam's visionary project and play Kundavai.
 
In the movie, Chiyaan Vikram plays Aditya Karikalan, and Jayam Ravi plays Arunmozhi Varman, also known as Ponniyin Selvan, who serves as the film's title character. Vanthiyathevan, played by Karthi, makes an appearance. Ponniyin Selvan marks Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's return to Tamil cinema as the lead antagonist Nandini. Produced by Mani Ratnam's domestic label Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions, the magnum opus features music by AR Rahman. The film will premiere on Friday, September 30.
