Soundarya Rajinikanth turns producer for Web-series based on Ponniyin Selvan.
Filmmaker Soundarya Rajinikanth is all set to tie the knot with actor-businessman Vishagan on February 11. But, that did not deter her from carrying out her work. Yesterday, she announced that she has collaborated with a video streaming service MX Player to produce a web-series on Tamil literary novel Ponniyin Selvan.
Soundarya took to Twitter to release the teaser and wrote, "A dream project !!! ... so thrilled to announce that we at @May6Ent are proud to partner with @mxplayer in bringing to life the epic novel #PonniyinSelvan as an MX Original Series god bless us !!!! Need all your support! #OriginalWebSeries #DigitalFuture (sic)
Looking at the teaser, it reminds us of Game of Thrones where the power struggle and socio-political scenario has been addressed in an intriguing manner. In a statement, she said, "Ponniyin Selvan is indeed one of the greatest historical novels written in Tamil and considered by many as the crown jewel of Tamil Literature. The novel chronicles the power struggle and the socio-political landscape of the Chola Dynasty, one of the longest ruling dynasties in Indian history and is a perfect amalgamation of an intriguing plot, romance, adventure, satire and an enduring battle for the throne.
