The much anticipated Ponniyin Selvan 2 has a new poster, which actor Aishwarya Rai shared on Instagram. The sequel to Mani Ratnam’s blockbuster Ponniyin Selvan 1 dominated the previous year’s box office. On Wednesday, the trailer for the next chapter is expected to be released.
Aishwarya and Vikram are featured in the new poster. In her beautiful appearance, Aishwarya, who has two roles in the movie franchise, can be seen lighting some diyas. With his other hand, Vikram seemed to be looking off into the distance intently. Aishwarya plays Mandakini Devi and Queen Nandini, the princess of Pazhuvoor, who is out for vengeance in the movie.
Aishwarya posted the new poster and commented, “Fire in their eyes. Love in their hearts. Blood on their swords. The Cholas will be back to fight for the throne!” A follower responded to the post by saying, “Can’t wait to see the beautiful Queen Nandhini.” Another one added, “Waiting For Your Revenge Queen.”
The movie team will reveal the Ponniyin Selvan 2 trailer in Chennai. According to sources, it will be accompanied by the music launch. The entire cast—including Aishwarya—will attend the evening function. Also, Kamal Haasan will be present. At the launch ceremony, he will be a special guest.
Together as Aishwarya and Vikram, Ponniyin Selvan 2 will feature actors Karthi, Jayam Ravi and Trisha Krishnan. In December, the movie’s teaser was revealed.
The Tamil novel of the same name by author Kalki Krishnamurthy, published as a series in the 1950s, inspired Ponniyin Selvan 1. Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies are the producers.
After their critically successful 2010 film Raavan, Aishwarya and Vikram collaborated on the Ponniyin Selvan movies. Abhishek Bachchan was also in Raavan, and Mani Ratnam directed the film. The movie was made in both Tamil and Hindi.
On April 28 of this year, Ponniyin Selvan 2 is scheduled for release.
