It was director Mani Ratnam's dream to adapt literary novel Ponniyin Selvan into a film. It took him nearly 10 years for him to get everything in place. In 2019, Ponniyin Selvan went on floors in Thailand with Karthi and Jayam Ravi. However, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the film's shoot had to be postponed. After almost 10 months, the shooting of Ponniyin Selvan has resumed in Hyderabad. Huge sets have been erected at the prestigious Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. Recently, a schedule was wrapped up in Hyderabad. After completing the Hyderabad schedule, Trisha, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, and Jayam Ravi had great fun in Hyderabad. They all had dinner with wives and kids of Jayam Ravi and Prakash Raj.
