Chennai: “Kamal Haasan expressed confidence that ‘Ponniin Selvan’ will be the most important hit in Mani Ratnam’s list of hits.
Director Mani Ratnam has filmed the novel ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ written by Kalki Krishnamurthy. The two-part film stars Vikram, Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Vikram Prabhu, Prakashraj, Jayaram, Sarathkumar, Parthiban, Aishwarya Rai and Trisha. The first part of the film is releasing on September 30. Produced by Laika Productions and Madras Talkies, the film has music composed by AR Rahman. Ravivarman will do the cinematography and Sreekar Prasad will do the editing.
In this case, the music and trailer launch of this film was held yesterday at the Nehru Sports Arena in Chennai. Actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, who attended the event, released the trailer of the film.
Speaking at the event, Kamal Haasan said: “Ponniin Selvan was bought by Makkal Thilak MGR. When I asked him for the rights of the film, he gave it to me. But he said to take it soon. I didn’t understand then. But I couldn’t take it. I regretted leaving my hand.
When he was thinking of making the film, Sivaji said that Rajini should be cast in the role of Vandiyathevan. I was shocked to hear that. Because I wanted to play that character. Well, leaving aside the fact that Shivaji sir had told Rajini… then I asked him what kind of character he had for me? He said, ‘You play the character of Arunmozhi Varman’. It didn’t happen that day. Today… Karthi has got to play the character that Rajini wanted to play and Jayam Ravi has got to play the character for me.
Success will come, failure will come… but you have to understand that. I thought that either Mani Ratnam or I will do Ponni Selvan’s film. Mani Ratnam eagerly took it. I tried, but Mani Ratnam has consistently tried and won.
It will be the biggest hit in Mani Ratnam’s hit list. I am not saying this for stage decoration,” said Kamal Haasan.
