Famous Malayalam actor Lal has confirmed that he will be playing a warrior in Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan.
In a recent media interaction, Lal revealed that he recently underwent a training session on horse riding for his role in the film. He was earlier approached to play an important role in Ratnam's Kadal but the actor couldn't accept the offer due to busy commitments.
Ponniyin Selvan also has Chiyaan Vikram, Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Aishwarya Rai, Keerthy Suresh, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Prabhu, and Mohan Babu in pivotal characters.
Produced by Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies, the first schedule of the film will go on floors this month in Thailand. Ravi Varman has been roped in to crank the camera for the magnum opus and Rahman will be composing the music.
