The latest hot buzz in the industry is that veteran actor Sathyaraj is in talks to play an important role in maverick filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s historical magnum opus ‘Ponniyin Selvan’.
If sources are to be believed, he will be playing the chief commander of Chola Kingdom.
The Chekka Chivantha Vaanam director is also in talks with ‘Jayam’ Ravi, Karthi, Vikram, Keerthy Suresh, Nayanthara, Aishwarya Rai, Mohan Babu and Amitabh Bachchan to essay pivotal characters.
The rehearsal and pre-production work will begin in August but the full-fledged shoot will only begin later this year. AR Rahman is likely to compose music for the film but the cinematographer and other details are yet to be confirmed.
