Legendary director Mani Ratnam's ambitious project Ponniyin Selvan's shoot commenced in December 2019 in Thailand. Some of the forest portions were shot there with Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Jayaram and others. Like other films, the shooting of Ponniyin Selvan had to be stalled due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. After a wait of about nine months, the crew resumed shoot in Hyderabad at Ramoji Film City a few days ago. Trisha is a part of this schedule in Hyderabad and is seen prepping for her role even during her flight.
Huge sets have been erected at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. Earlier, during the lockdown, Trisha learnt horse riding for her role in the film. Recently, she hopped on a flight to Hyderabad. During her flight, she posed with a book of Kakli Krishnamoorthy's novel Ponniyin Selvan. Going by her caption, she had already completed reading Ponniyin Selvan and is now going for round 2. According to reports, Trisha is expected to be playing the role of Kundavai. The film's ensemble cast includes Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Chiyaan Vikram, Sobhita Dhulipala and others.
