Audiences have taken notice of Trisha’s several appearances as the Chola princess in the movie. In a recent interview, the stunning actress talked freely about finalizing her appearance for the film.
For Trisha’s role as Kundavai, they reportedly tested more than 50 different looks. “You guys have just seen a couple of Kundavai’s looks from the film. We tried over 50 looks for the film and later shortlisted around 30 out of them. Later, we picked the best ten looks from that list, from which Mani Ratnam sir decided what worked for his film. The full credits for my looks go to Mani sir and the styling team – to Eka Lakhani and her team,” the actress remarked.
Regarding Trisha Krishnan’s role in Ponniyin Selvan, she plays Kundavai Devi, the princess of the Chola dynasty known as the Ilaiya Piratti.
