The historical novel Ponnin Selvan written by Kalki has been made into a film directed by Mani Ratnam. Earlier, MGR, Kamal Haasan and others tried and failed to make this novel into a film.
Mani Ratnam attempted it in the 1990s and later abandoned it. In such a situation, the shooting of Ponni’s Selvan started two years ago and the teaser of the film was released on 9th.
Released in 5 languages, this teaser has received a great response. Meanwhile, the film crew mentored the character of Jayam Ravi, who plays Ponni’s rich man, as Arun Lisa Varman.

But controversies arose that Raja Raja Cholan’s name was Arul Leesham and the film crew was wrongly recording history.
At the same time, linguists had said that it is correct to write the name of Arulmozhi Varman as Arunmozhi Varman according to the rules of grammar.
In this case, the film crew has released a video telling whether it is Arun Mojhi or Arul Mojhi.
Earlier, the poster of Vikram starring Aditha Karikalan was released with Vethi Tilak on her forehead. Some netizens courted controversy by saying that it is a name.
Similarly, Trisha’s outfit also came under controversy. Earlier, when Trisha’s poster came out, there was criticism whether it is a Tamil Nadu tradition.
