Jayam Ravi completed shooting for his portions in Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan, on Wednesday, August 25, and he took to his official Twitter page to share the update. Ravi was the first lead actor among the stellar star cast to have completed the shoot for this historical epic. Ravi penned a heartfelt note thanking Mani Ratnam for giving him the opportunity to play the character of Ponniyin Selvan. In a surprising turn of events, Karthi replied to Jayam Ravi's tweet on Ponniyin Selvan in an interesting fashion and the reply has now gone viral among the fans.

Karthi plays the role of Vandhiya Thevan in Ponniyin Selvan and he replied to Ravi's tweet as VandhiyaThevan. Calling Ravi as his King, Karthi revealed that the team of Ponniyin Selvan will be back in town in another 6 days, after wrapping up the ongoing schedule in Orchha, Madhya Pradesh. Karthi's tweet read, "இளவரசே @actor_jayamravi நீங்கள் அதற்குள் விடைபெற்றுக்கொள்ள முடியாது! நீங்கள் சோழ நாட்டிற்கு செய்ய வேண்டிய பணிகள் நிறைய உள்ளது 😁 இன்னும் 6 நாட்களில் வடக்கில் வேலைகளை முடித்துவிட்டு தென் மண்டலம் வந்தடைவோம். - வந்தியத்தேவன் 🐎 🐎 #PS #PonniyinSelvan".

Though we are not sure if this is a promotional strategy or a candid conversation, the tweet definitely has invoked a sense of excitement in the audience. Karthi reacting to Ravi's tweet as Vandhiya Thevan is quite interesting to see. While Ravi and Karthi will be seen essaying the roles of Ponniyin Selvan and Vandhiya Thevan respectively, Chiyaan Vikram will be playing Adithya Karikalan. Initially, it was Thalapathy Vijay who was approached to play Vandhiya Thevan and the makers even conducted test shoots in 2018. However, due to call sheet issues, the star actor had to opt himself out of the project.

Ponniyin Selvan is being made as a two-part film and the first film will release in the summer of 2022. The film has music composed by A.R.Rahman. Ponniyin Selvan's stellar star cast features Chiyaan Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Ashwin Kakumanu, Prabhu, Prakash Raj, Jayaram, Vikram Prabhu, Sobhita Dhulipala, Rahman, Riyaz Khan, Mohan Raman, Nizhalgal Ravi, Arjun Chidambaram, Vinodhini Vaidyanathan, and others.
