“Don’t Come To Judge The Film After Reading Book” – Actor Karthi
- Ponniyin Selvan
Answering to a reporter’s question on whether “Ponniyin Selvan” movie justified the book and its novelty, Actor Karthi, during the promotional press meet of the movie, had said that the film made by ace director Manirathnam is an experience. The actor suggested audience and media to feel the experience instead of judging it based on the book written by Kalki.
The most awaited trailer and songs of the multi starrer got released in the presence of Ulaganaayagan Kamal Haasan and Superstar Rajinikanth. Starting with the voice over of Kamal haasan, the 3 minute 23 seconds long trailer showed the glimpses of the characters played by prominent stars such as Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Vikram, Aishwarya Rai, Trisha, Jayaram, Aishwarya Lekshmi and others.
The dream project of converting “Ponniyin Selvan” book into a film was planned by many leading stars including MGR and Kamal Haasan. The dream is coming true only through the seasoned filmmaker who is known for giving master pieces in the history of Indian cinema.
As the film is slated to release on 30th of September, the makers have started promoting it in various districts of Tamil nadu and are expected to visit different states in the coming days as well. In one of the recent press meets, a reporter asked actor Karthi to tell honestly whether the film justified the book written by Kalki.
“Will “Ponniyin Selvan” satisfy the audience who read the book ?? Tell me as a fan who read the book” the reporter asked. In reply, the actor said “It was exciting to see each characters taking up the roles of “Ponniyin Selvan”. I saw Ravi as “Arun Mozhi Varman” for the first time in Thailand. He looked exactly the same as Raja raja Chozhan with the original gold attire and other accessories. I was surprised and stunned on seeing him that way” Karthi said.
“Costume designer came to me and asked whether I saw the looks of Kundhavai. After watching her in photos, I called Trisha and expressed my awe towards her looks as Kundavai. Starting from looks, I was excited on seeing each and every event of the book being made as a scene in the film. I can’t express my admiration in a better way” Karthi said.
