Jayam Ravi reveals Mani Ratnam’s detailing for Arunmozhi Varman’s role
Actor Jayam Ravi, who is playing Arunmozhi Varman (a) Raja Raja Cholan in Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan recollects an important incident from the shooting spot when the maverick filmmaker got infuriated for a small mistake of the actor. He says, “During one particular scene, where I had to tell the wind has stopped blowing, and looked down. And that’s when Mani sir scolded me infuriatedly stating that Arunmozhi Varman never looks down throughout the movie. So that’s one thing, which I took my heart and consciously followed it across the entire shoot.”
The recently released visual promo of Chiyaan Vikram, Jayam Ravi and Karthi appearing together in a shot has created huge sensation as there isn’t any such sequence in the original book of Ponniyin Selvan penned by Amarar Kalki.
