Ponniyin Selvan, directed by Mani Ratnam, was split into two parts, with the second part hitting cinemas in April of last year. The widely anticipated sequel also became a box office smash, as the movie just finished its 25-day theatrical run. ‘Ponniyin Selvan 2’ is now preparing for an OTT release, and the movie will stream for a fee to kick off the OTT premiere. On a well-known digital site, ‘Ponniyin Selvan 2’ will start streaming on May 26 and will thereafter be available for one week as a paid module. Beginning on June 2, users of the digital platform will have free access to the historical drama.
The historical drama’s fans will be able to see it again anytime they want thanks to the blockbuster movie’s upcoming OTT release. It’s important to note that during the first week of its OTT distribution, ‘Ponniyin Selvan 1’ was also streamed for a fee.
The historical story of the Cholas is portrayed in the movie ‘Ponniyin Selvan,’ which was adapted from a book by Kalki Krishnamoorthy. Among the cast of Mani Ratnam’s ambitious project are Jayam Ravi, Chiyaan Vikram, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha, Shobita, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sarathkumar, and Prakash Raj. AR Rahman composed the music for the movie. Both portions of ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ were projected to have a budget of Rs 500 crores, but they have collectively produced over Rs 840 crores, making the movie extremely profitable for the producers.
