Ratnam refused to accept any similarity with Baahubali. Later the fan said, if not Baahubali then Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat. Mani Ratnam once again refused and said, “It would be like what Kalki had written in her novel. That is what we have tried from the first day till today as far as possible."

To this reply, everyone in the audience applauded Mani Ratnam’s views. The director also expressed gratitude to SS Rajamouli for opening the door to such films in the Tamil industry. This period film is based on the Chola emperor Arulmozhivarman and was co-written by Mani Ratnam, Elango Kumaravel, and B. Jeyamohan.

The glimpse of the trailer and the songs by music maestro A R Rahman glitter the venture. Ponniyin Selvan is jointly produced by Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies. As per the Twitter reviews, the movie has done a spectacular adaption from the novel with the scintillating work of AR Rahman.
