If reliable sources are to be believed, Keerthy Suresh will be seen playing the bold and beautiful Chola kingdom princess ‘Kundhavai’ in Mani Ratnam’s ‘Ponniyin Selvan’. We also hear that actors like Karthi, ‘Jayam’ Ravi, Vikram, Mohan Babu, Amitabh Bachchan, and Aishwarya Rai are likely to play the lead roles in the film.
Sources say that either Lyca Productions or Reliance Entertainment will be bankrolling the film along with Mani Ratnam’s own production house Madras Talkies. Currently, the team is busy with the pre-production works and evaluating the final budget of the film.
If all goes well, the principal shoot of the film will begin by the end of this year. The one big challenge for Mani Ratnam is to choose the location to erect gigantic sets for the film
