Mani Ratnam is currently shooting for his most ambitious film in Thailand. It features several established actors from various film industries in the country.

Mani Ratnam, one of the most prolific filmmakers working in the Indian film industry, is presently busy helming his upcoming directorial offering Ponniyin Selvan. While his last directorial outing, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (2018), was an out-and-out action thriller, his next is a historical drama based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's historical fictional novel of the same name.

The latest about the much-awaited Mani Ratnam directorial we hear that the team is gearing up to raise the curtain on the title font of the upcoming magnum opus. Yes, the title font of Ponniyin Selvan will be released today on January 2. The official Twitter handle of Ratnam’s production house, Madras Talkies, shared the news on Wednesday.

Ponniyin Selvan has been in news even before hitting the shooting floor. Leading Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who started her career with Iruvar in 1997, is reuniting with celebrated filmmaker Mani Ratnam after a decade. They last worked together on Hindi film Raavan which released in 2010. Aside from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the historical drama also features Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Aishwarya Lekshmi and Sarathkumar, among others. Rumours are rife that megastar Amitabh Bachchan may also been seen in a special role in the film.
