"Ponni Nadhi is an introduction to Vanthiyathevan’s personality," says Karthi in new promo video for Ponniyin Selvan
Ponni Nadhi covers Vanthiyathevan’s entire journey across the Cholan kingdom, as he rides his horse along the banks of the Kaveri river
The recently released promo video for Ponniyin Selvan takes us behind the scenes into the making of the Ponni Nadhi song. The video shows us the filming of the song intercut with actor Karthi and dance choreographer Brinda talking about their experience working on the song.
The actor describes the song as “An introduction to Vanthiyathevan’s personality, its an introduction to the kingdom and how it is flourishing, ” the actor then talked about working and bonding with the horse, which is known by the name of Semban in the film. Dance master Brinda talked about how the horse obediently responded to commands, which evidently made things easier for the choreographer.
Karthi, who features heavily in the song, tells us that Ponni Nadhi covers Vanthiyathevan’s entire journey across the Cholan kingdom, as he rides his horse along the banks of the Kaveri river (known in ancient times as Ponni river)
