A quick glance at Thursday's trends list will show that Ponniyin Selvan 2 is trending a great deal. The trailer of Mani Ratnam's magnum opus released last night and it is trending even now. TBH, we are not surprised at all, given the film's impressive star cast that includes Vikram as Aditha Karikalan, Jayam Ravi, who plays Arulmozhi Varman, Karthi, who stars as Vallavaraiyan Vanthiyathevan, Kundavi (played by Trisha) and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Nandini (she has a double role). Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Nandini is a fan favourite and the many tweets about her character are a testament to that. Let's take a look at some of tweets.
Before that, check out the trailer of Ponniyin Selvan 2 here:
A Twitter user shared their favourite scene of the trailer and of course it features Nandini. "Goosebumps at end of Ponniyin Selvan trailer. Nandini eyeing the throne, Nandini's conflicted look, Aditya Karikalan (Aditha Karikalan)'s love for her," wrote a fan.

The period drama is based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's popular historical novel Ponniyin Selvan(The Son Of Ponni) and its cast includes some of the biggest stars including Vikram, Trisha, Karthi, Jayam Ravi. It also stars Sobhita Dhulipala and Aishwarya Lekshmi. The second installment of the film is slated to release on April 28.
Ponniyin Selvan, produced by Lyca Productions, was the first part of magnum opus. It released in theatres in September last year in five languages - Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. The film clashed with Vikram Vedha, starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan at the box office. The film opened to good reviews from film critics and was equally adept at impressing the audience.
