Saravanaraj to direct animated Ponniyin Selvan

Ponniyin Selvan, a historic novel by Kalki Krishnamurthy which revolves around the confusion in the Chola empire about who should succeed emperor Sundara Chozhar (played by Vishwanathan Ramesh), who is ill.

Everyone assumes his older son and warrior Aditha Karikalan (played by actor Pasupathy) would be anointed crown prince, but power-hungry councillor Periya Pazhuvettiyar (Ramasamy) and his wife Nandini (Meera Krishnamurthy) have plans to place Sundara Chozhar's cousin Madurantakan (Elavarasan Raja) on the throne. Then, there are a few assassins from the Pandya empire who want revenge for the killing of their emperor Veerapandian. Sundara Chozhan also seems to be battling a few demons of his own. 

Other Kalki's historical novels such as Parthiban Kanvu were quickly made into movies, three attempts to film Ponniyin Selvan were aborted. Now P.Saravanaraj is attempting to make animated ‘Ponniyin Selvan’. The inauguration function is being held today at a star hotel in Chennai.
