Ponniyin Selvan 2 is Mani Ratnam and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s sixth collaboration, following Iruvar, Guru, Ravan, and Ponniyin Selvan 1.
During a press conference, when asked if Aishwarya is his lucky charm, the filmmaker stated, “Filmmakers are very selfish people.” The only thing they care about is the picture, and they are completely cold and greedy. I only ask her whether she is right for the job, no matter how much I adore her. I’ve asked her every time because I thought she was perfect for the job, and she’s always been kind enough to say yes. So she is more than just a lucky charm for me; her talent and personality were ideal for portraying this character.
