One of the most awaited movies of the year Ponniyin Selvan remains in the news as it movie starts various big faces of the entertainment Industry. It will release on September 30 in Tamil, along with dubbed versions in Hindi, Kannada, Telugu and Malayalam. The movie features south actress Trisha Krishnan and Aishwarya Rai in pivotal roles.
Trisha Krishnan spoke about working with Aishwarya. “I fortunately got to meet her and interact with her on the day one of my shoot. She is beautiful inside and out, I don't even need to say that. The thing is, this was challenging because we are not supposed to like each other too much in this film, but we got along pretty famously on set. There were times when Mani sir would come and say, 'listen, you guys are taking too much, stop talking, I can't have this camaraderie for my scene’.”
The actress further said, “She is lovely to work with, and I'm sure everyone here and who's worked with her would agree me that she is so warm and one of the most hardworking actors I have worked with. She spoke in chaste Tamil and how it has to be spoken. She will get up at 2 am and get ready with us. I am very honoured that I could share a screen space with her.”
