Ponniyin Selvan 2’s makers revealed Trisha Krishnan’s multiple looks as Princess Kundavai from the film in a special video ahead of the film’s release.
Ponniyin Selvan 2, the much-anticipated second installment of veteran filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s much-loved film franchise, is getting ready for a big release. The first installment of the project, based on legendary writer Kalki Krishnamurthy’s novel of the same name, was released in theaters in September 2022 and was a huge box-office success. Ponniyin Selvan’s creators are now preparing to release the second installment’s promotional campaign and have been rewarding fans with special videos on social media.
The popular actress, Trisha Krishnan, wowed audiences with her portrayal of Princess Kundavai in Ponniyin Selvan 1. During the first installment’s promotion, she revealed that she and the team, including stylist Eka Lakhani, tried around 50 looks for the character Kundavai. Mani Ratnam, the film’s director, later chose around ten of them for inclusion in the film. Ponniyin Selvan’s makers have now released a special video featuring Trisha’s entire look from the film.
Trisha Krishnan appears in the video wearing Princess Kundavai’s signature top bun and side braid hairstyles, various colors of traditional silk outfits, and antique temple jewelry ornaments. The talented actress is simply ethereal as the Chola Dynasty’s most intelligent princess, who played a significant role in her younger brother Arunmozhi Varman, aka Raja Raja Chola’s enormous rise to power.
Towards the end of the Kundavai special video, the makers of Ponniyin Selvan 2 also confirmed that the project’s first single, composed by AR Rahman, will be released very soon. According to unconfirmed reports, the first single from Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus will be the romantic melody ‘Devi,’ which will depict the poetic romance of Princess Kundavai and Vanthiyathevan, played by Karthi. Filmgoers are now eagerly awaiting the return of the much-loved onscreen couple’s magical chemistry to the big screen.
