Kamal Haasan, Ponniyin Selvan 1

Actor-politician Kamal Haasan has reportedly lent his voice to Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan (Ps-1).

Kamal is said to have given the voiceover, narrating the film’s introduction. If reports are true, Ponniyin Selvan will mark the second collaboration of the actor-director duo after Nayakan (1987). However, the makers haven’t made any official announcement regarding the same.

The historical drama is a two-part film which is based on the epic book of the same name, authored by Kalki. The first instalment is set to hit the big screens on September 30. The film features a star cast, including Vikram, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha, Jayam Ravi, Vikram Prabhu, and Aishwarya Lekshmi, Prabhu, Jayaram, Prakash Raj, Lal, Sarath Kumar, and Ashwin Kakamanu.

Earlier in the week, the makers had kickstarted the promotions by releasing the character posters of the cast. The posters of Vikram as Aditya Karikalan, Karthi as Vallavaraiyan Vandiyadevan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Queen Nandini, Trisha as Princess Kundavai, and Jayam Ravi as titular character Ponniyin Selvan, were released.

Backed by Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions, the duology will release in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. 

Ponniyin Selvan’s teaser was launched on July 8. The little more –than- one-minute-long teaser, shows extravagant visuals of the Chola dynasty with elaborate war sequences and glimpses of prominent royalties and commanders.
