And now, in her conversation with Film Companion, Aishwarya opened up about Ponniyin Selvan and called it as Mani Ratnam’s dream project. The actress said, “When he came and he shared and he said, ‘You know this is something I wanted to make right at the beginning”. I’m like I’m so privileged and so blessed that he asked me to be a part of his dream. I think just to begin at that in itself is so fulfilling. And then of course the experience has been superlative as always and you work with a talent like him and the talent that he naturally brings together each and every time”.

Furthermore, Aishwarya also shared her experience of collaborating with her guru Mani Ratnam and said that it is always special for her. “In the beginning, it was an absolute blessing for the student in me who was just right into cinema and getting to work with Mani Ratnam, I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity for someone who was beginning in film. Thereafter, I’m blessed that I’ve had the opportunity to work with someone like a director and a talent like Mani Ratnam over the years on so many more projects and memorable films and great learning experiences for me as a growing artist. And I keep saying growing because you continue to even now, even tomorrow with every experience. So, I am blessed that I’ve got the chance to work with Mani so many times,” the Bachchan bahu was quoted saying.

Also starring Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Jayaram, Sobhita Dhulipala, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Vikram Prabhu and Ashwin Kakumanu, Ponniyin Selvan is slated to release on September 30 this year.
