Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Vikram to unite again for Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan?
Filmamker Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan has been in the news due to his next. A historical novel by author Kalki Krishnamurthy, it is the story of Arulmozhivarman, who later became the Chola king Rajaraja Chola I. Seemingly, the book took three years to complete as Kalki had to visit Sri Lanka three times to collect information for it. On this novel, the filmmaker had also pronounced the project with popular stars Vijay, Vikram and Mahesh Babu. But, things did not happen as the project was getting too challenging.
But, news now has it that Mani is once again all geared up to give this one a try. Seemingly, Mani Ratnam is all set to rope in his preferred actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in this big endeavour along with Vikram, Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu and Jayam Ravi. Amitabh Bachchan could also end up essaying the role of Sundara Chola in the movie.
