The makers of Mani Ratnam's magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan 2 dropped a sneak peek of Trisha's character in the film, Ilaiya Piratti Kundavai. The 45-second video gives a glimpse of how Trisha's look from the film was designed, right from her hair to the fabric of her clothes. They also dropped the many looks of the actress from the historical fiction and it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that the actress looked regal in each one of them. They also announced that the first single from the film will be out soon.
Taking to their social media handle, the producers wrote, "Sharp tongue. Fierce mind. Powerhouse! Have you missed our eternal beauty? Watch what went on BTS as @trishtrashers became #Kundavai! First Single Coming Soon! Stay tuned #PS #PS1 #PS2 #PonniyinSelvan #ManiRatnam @arrahman @LycaProductions @Tipsofficial @tipsmusicsouth (sic)."
