It has been revealed that Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi has opted out of this project due to his hectic work schedule. Rumours state that his call sheet has been booked fully, till the end of 2020! Insider reports reveal that Vijay Sethupathi might be replaced by Karthi in this Mani Ratnam multi-starrer. Ponniyin Selvan will also have Vikram, STR, Jayam Ravi, Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Karthi to replace Vijay Sethupathi in Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan!

Karthi had a mediocre outing in his recently released Dev and is on the lookout for a hit. When Ponniyin Selvan materialises, it will not only be one of the biggest movies in Tamil cinema but will reach across Indian cinema, as a whole!
