In PS1, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Trish playing arch rivals. In a promotional video of PS1, Trisha shared how Mani Ratnam had asked both actors not to be friends with each other. “When I work with Ash (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), I mean it’s not an Aishwarya Rai and a Trisha Krishnan who is there. It must be a Nandini and a Kundavai. Mani sir said, ‘Dude, you can’t be friends. This is Nandini and Kundavai, so don’t talk too much. I need you guys to have a little bit of rivalry for my stage,” she said.
At the trailer launch of the film, Aishwarya had praised her entire team. She had said, “It has been an absolute honor to work with Mani Ratnam again, with such a talented team of actors and technicians. The entire cast is amazing. Everyone is outstanding.”
