Jayaram is the latest addition to the crew. In a recent interview, Jayaram, said, “I am privileged to be a part of one such project in Tamil. I am not at the liberty to reveal further since the project is at its nascent stages. I will be playing a bigger part in the biggest film of Tamil (cinema) history.” Music is by AR Rahman.

Remember Vikram, who is teaming up with Mani Ratnam again after Raavan, said that the script of Ponniyin Selvan excited him to the core. He said, “When Mani Ratnam narrated the script to me and told me about the outline of the character, I was like ‘Wow’. It is very intense, fierce, aggressive kind of role for which I have to build a little more body and looks have to be changed.” He also hinted that his character in the film will have grey shades.
