Legendary Kollywood filmmaker Mani Ratnam is currently busy with post-production activities for the second part of the recently released period drama, Ponniyin Selvan. As PS-1 ended up as one of the highest grossers in Tamil, the hype for the second part is very high among moviegoers and trade circles.
Already the team revealed that PS-2 will be out on April 28th. While everyone is thinking that the promotional activities for PS-2 will kick-start soon, a few days back reports came out that the film’s release date is postponed indefinitely.
But this afternoon the makers officially announced that PS-2 aka Ponniyin Selvan-2 will be out on April 28th itself. A making video with the reconfirmation on the release date is released by the team today and kept a check to the postponement rumors.
On the other hand, a few months back news also circulated that after checking the rushes of PS-2 on the editing table, Mani Ratnam felt that a few key portions required to be re-shot. However, there is no official confirmation regarding it later. Starring Vikram, Aishwarya Rai, Trisha, Prakash Raj, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Shobita Dhulipala among others in prominent roles, Ponniyin Selvan is Mani Ratnam’s ambitious project.
The film is a visual presentation of legendary Tamil author Kalki Krishnamurthy’s novel of the same title. AR Rahman is the music composer for the film. Mani Ratnam’s Madras Talkies in association with Lyca Productions bankrolled the prestigious project.
