Mani Ratnam's Madras Talkies has revealed the first look of Kishore from Ponniyin Selvan-1. The actor portrays Ravidasan, one of the novel's main antagonists. He is Veerapandian's bodyguard and Parameswaran's ally.

Kishore is seen with long hair and a beard in the poster. 

Ponniyin Selvan's gripping teaser depicted magnificent ancient locations as the Cholas fought valiantly during a power struggle in the 10th century. With its picturesque settings, bloody wars, and breathtaking grandeur, the film appears to be an absolute thrill ride.

On July 8, a grand event in Chennai saw the release of the teaser for this magnum opus. The entire cast and crew of the film were present. Amitabh Bachchan, Mahesh Babu, Rakshit Shetty, and Suriya, further, shared the teaser on social media.

Ponniyin Selvan stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Vikram, Karthi, Trisha, and Jayam Ravi in an ensemble cast. Aishwarya will play two characters. In the historical drama, she will play Queen Nandini, the princess of Pazhuvur on a vengeance mission, as well as Mandakini Devi.

Vikram will play Aditya Karikalan, Karthi will play Vanthiyathevan, Trisha will be seen as Kundavai, and Ravi will play Arunmozhi Varman.

Ponniyin Selvan-part 1 is a film adaptation of author Kalki Krishnamurthy's Tamil novel of the same name, which was published in the 1950s as a series.

Ponniyin Selvan is Aishwarya's second collaboration with south actor Vikram, following their critically acclaimed film Raavan in 2010, and her fourth with director Mani Ratnam, following Iruvar in 1997, Guru in 2007, and Raavan in 2010.

PS-1 will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada on September 30. For now, we don't know when part 2 will be out.

Ponniyin Selvan's audio and trailer launch event is scheduled for September 6 at Nehru Stadium in Chennai. The event's organisers have announced that Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, two icons of Indian cinema, will be the main guests. Many other prominent Tamil film industry figures are expected to attend the event, which will feature a live performance by AR Rahman and his team.
