Days after the first single from Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan was released, the makers have on Thursday shared the making video of the song 'Ponni Nadhi', which took the viewers into the world of Ponniyin Selvan. The behind-the-scenes video has been turning heads and besides featuring the visuals of the making, it also had actor Karthi and the choreographer sharing their experience with the song.
The making video runs for almost two minutes and Karthi said, "Ponni Nadhi Paakanume song is about a Vaanar Clan Prince who's entering Chola's territory for the first time in his life. It's about that journey. In this film, Semban is his horse. The only two who don't respect Vanthiyathevan (his role in the movie) is, Poonguzhali. This is an introduction to Vanthiyathevan's personality, it's an introduction to the kingdom. It's an introduction to how it was flourishing!".
"It covers his entire journey...and on a horseback", Karthi added. Ponni Nadhi song has poured a promising reception to the movie team as in four days, the Tamil version of the song has garnered over 10 million views. Ponniyin Selvan, which is Kollywood's dream project, has been slated for a theatrical release on September 30.
