Mani Ratnam's ambitious project Ponniyin Selvan is one of the most awaited releases in the film industry. The film, which is an adaptation of Kalki's novel of the same name, revolves around the early days of Arunmozhi Varman, who goes on to become Raja Raja Cholan I. The film boasts a stellar star cast comprising Vikram as Aditha Karikalan, Karthi as Vallavarayan Vanthiyathevan, Jayam Ravi as Arunmozhi Varman and Trisha as Princess Kundavai. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen as Nandini, the Queen of Pazhuvoor, who has her eyes on the Chola throne. The actress' intro scene in the recently released trailer turned many heads.
But guess who dubbed for the actress in the magnum opus. It's none other than popular dubbing artiste and actress Deepa Venkat who did the honours. Deepa, who is popular as the voice of Nayanthara, revealed in an Instagram post that this is the first time that she is dubbing for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She also thanked director Mani Ratnam for the opportunity. She had been part of Mani Ratnam's earlier ventures, including Kannathil Muthamittaal, Guru, Cheliya and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
Deepa shared her excitement about being part of the film with a lengthy post, which read like this, "Going to crescent avenue and entering the studio of Madras Talkies is like going home. Warm, friendly faces and fun chats catching up with technicians and staff at the office. Except you don't know what challenges are waiting for you when you enter the dub suite. But every time I leave this studio, overwhelmed and with a sense of fulfillment. Being part of films like Kannathil Muthamittaal, Guru, Cheliya ( Telugu version of Kaatru Veliyidai ), Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (tamil and telugu) and now, PS-1, has enriched me in more ways than I can think of."
She also revealed that she was dubbing for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the first time. "This is my first one, for the enchanting and deeply committed actor, Aishwarya Rai. I have more to share about her. But that has to be a seperate post. Later:)) Link to the trailer is in my story, in case you haven't caught it already. Mani sir, I can never thank you enough for this. Thanks for all the love, everyone (sic)." The film is gearing up to hit screens worldwide on September 30.
