Vijay to play Vanthiyathevan in Maniratnam's Ponniyinselvan :(
  • Vijay to join Mani Ratnam for Ponniyin Selvan

    The saying `tough times don't last for ever' seems to come true as regards Ilaya Thalapathy Vijay's profession. After facing many hiccoughs and speed bumps in his career in the recent times, Vijay is all set to raise like a phoenix with impressive projects in his kitty. If sources in the industry are to be believed, Vijay will be doing the role of Vandhiya Thevan in the historical project Ponniyin Selvan immortalized by Kalki Krishnamurthy to be directed by director Mani Ratnam. More details on the rest of the cast is awaited.

    Beside this, Vijay will also be donning the role of Aamir Khan in Nanban, the Tamil remake of Three Idiots being directed by Shankar. Not only this, Vijay will soon be wrapping up Jeyam Raja's Velayudham where he will be seen romancing Genelia and Hansika. This line up of exciting projects certainly reiterates that Vijay's career is going great guns and here is wishing him all the best!

  • Hi,

    Somewhere I read that the movie is not the actual ponniyin selvan novel, but a
    movie with that sayal... like
    thalapathi being a version of modern karna, ravanan being the modern version of
    ramayana, similarly this new movie by Mr.MuniRatnam is going to be a modern
    version of the authentic historic tamil novel ponniyin selvan... So friends
    don't keep your expectations high.


  • In that case - i am available for writing screen play
  • SN Sir, The screen play will be "Ponniyin selvan before Kalki" . Sariya?
  • Dear,
    Is it my story Malarcholai mangai- ponniyin selvanukku mun? I am much excited
  • I just hope Maniratnam does not mess up the movie, with his own agenda and version of socialism/communism. No movie would be able to do justice to the novel, and I am fine with some artistic liberty but hopefully the movie is well made. The last movie of his was horrible.

  • Sir

    Yours is a serious work. Mine will be like inspired by ( copynu /ultanu sollakkoodathu) "History of the World"

Howdy, Stranger!
