Mani Ratnam’s much awaited magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan: I was released on September 30. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Kalki Krishnamurthy. Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha Krishnan, Sobhita Dhulipala Jayam Ravi and Karthi are part of the project. Now, a day after the release, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has shared a set of heartwarming pictures on Instagram. Of course, it stars the supreme filmmaker Mani Ratnam. Here the two pose happily for the lens. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan didn’t think much of the caption and simply dropped a star, red heart and evil eye emojis. The actress looks stunning in the royal blue ethnic ensemble. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Mani Ratnam have previously collaborated for Iruvar, Guru and Raavan. Fans have praised the “greatest director-actor couple” in the comments section. One person wrote: “I watched PS-1 yesterday… mind blowing. Great plot, acting and direction”. Another said: “Ponniyin Selvan is a big hit. And you only get good reviews for your performance.”
Trisha Krishnan, on Ponniyin Selvan: I release day, treated us to some behind-the-scenes photos from the sets. She also shared a picture with Mani Ratnam and wrote, “Kundavai and her creator. Thanks Mani sir for everything. See you in theatres. 30.9.2022.” Trisha Krishnan plays the role of the princess of the Chola dynasty.
Earlier, Trisha Krishnan also shared a picture with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from the sets Ponniyin Selvan: I. The film also marks Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s return to the big screen.
Earlier, during an interaction with NDTV, Trisha Krishan opened up about sharing the screen space with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She said, “Ash Mam, luckily I got to meet her and interact with her on day one of my shoot. She’s beautiful inside and out, I don’t even need to say that. The thing is, this was challenging because it wasn’t we’re supposed to like each other too much in this film, but we hit it off pretty famously on the sets. She added, “There were times when Mani sir would come and say, ‘look, you’re taking too much, stop when I’m talking, I can’t have this camaraderie for my stage.'”
