After four years, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will feature in Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan: I. On Wednesday, a new poster from the film featuring the actress was released by the makers. As Nandini, Aishwarya looks ethereal in an ethnic outfit and adorns lots of embellishments. Sharing the poster on Instagram, in the caption, Aishwarya wrote, “Vengeance has a beautiful face! Meet Nandini, the Queen of Pazhuvoor! PS1 releasing in theatres on 30th September in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada,” and tagged director Mani Ratnam in the post.
While fans went berserk seeing the poster, the actress received a shout out from husband Abhishek Bachchan. On his Instagram story, Abhishek shared Aishwarya’s post and dropped a huge red heart emoticon. Take a look at the poster below:
Ponniyin Selvan: I will mark Aishwarya and director Mani Ratnam’s fourth collaboration. The film has an ensemble cast consisting of Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Jayaram, Aishwarya Lekshmi, R. Sarathkumar and Sobhita Dhulipala. Being co-produced by Mani Ratnam’s Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions, the film is the first of two mammoth projects based on Kalki Krishnamurthy’s 1955 novel Ponniyin Selvan.
In March, Aishwarya shared her first look from the film and wrote, “The Golden Era comes to the big screens on Sept 30th!” In the image, she is seen wearing a beautiful saree with her hair tied back and wearing intricate jewellery.

On the work front, Aishwarya was seen last in Fanney Khan in 2018 with Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. Abhishek recently starred in Dasvi and will soon work on the Hindi remake of Oththa Seruppu Size 7.
