Here is another big shot boarding the Ponniyin Selvan ship. Fresh reports pouring in suggest that PC Sreeram will try to recreate the magic behind the lens and onscreen for Mani Ratnam’s forthcoming classic.The cinematographer was in news earlier when his daughter passed away in a terrible mishap, falling from the 4th floor of the apartment.
The acclaimed cinematographer has won hearts with movies like Thiruda Thiruda,Alaipayuthey and the recent hit Yaavarum Nalam.Mani’s choice for choosing PC is an apt one for the movie. We are told that PC has treasured the Kalki novel right from his childhood days after his mom gifted it to him, being a big fan herself.
Sources report that Mani feels the need to get the novel out in sequels rather than brushing over the novel in a single flick. The director does not want to take any chances sacrificing the script and wants to do full justice to get the story out for a wider audience.
Mani Ratnam will be all smiles now that he has the support of 2 genuine Ponniyin Selvan fans in the form of Vasanth assisting and PC Sreeram bringing in his vast experience and knowledge to make this project a thrilling visual experience.
