Ponniyin Selvan to be dropped?

Here comes breaking news! There is widespread speculation in the industry that Mani Ratnam’s much awaited Ponniyin Selvan may be dropped. The reasons are still unknown. After making several films with elements of history or mythology, this time the ace director was planning a full-fledged adaptation of the novel. Vijay, Mahesh Babu and Arya were signed to play the lead roles while Anushka was to be Vijay’s love interest and Mahesh Babu’s sister.
Ponniyin Selvan deals with the fortunes of the Chola empire during the 10th century. The story revolves around Vandiyathevan, a charming young man who comes to the Chola kingdom to deliver a message from Crown Prince Aditya Karikalan. Noted Tamil writer Jayamohan will pen the dialogues. The Ponniyin Selvan team included Mani’s favourites A.R. Rahman, Santosh Sivan, Sabu Cyril and Sreekar Prasad.
