Earlier this week, Master Raghavan Murugan, known for his appearances in films like Sethupathi, Maari 2 and Bhaskar Oru Rascal, posted selfies with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, while confirming that the actress will be portraying the character of Nandini Devi and his role as a young Pandiya prince. Among the several major highlights in Ponniyin Selvan is the collaboration of Mani Ratnam and A. R. Rahman, with their combo expected to deliver memorable songs and score once again. The technical team on board the film is incredible as it includes names like Ravi Varman handling the cinematography, Sreekar Prasad taking care of the editing and Thotta Tharani as the art director.
