Ponniyin Selvan 2 Trailer: Promises A Bloody Warfare!

Director Mani Ratnam’s epic historical flick Ponniyin Selvan was released last year amidst high anticipation. The entertainer was screened in more than 1000 screens worldwide. It enjoyed massive response among the audience except for little dissatisfaction over VFX portions. The project racked up a pile load of money. Unfortunately, though it had a positive response on one sect of the audience, it ran into a controversy among another sect of the population. It paved the way for a heated debate on social media, and faced strong criticism from Tamil historians. Even director Vetrimaaran made a comment on the issue. Eventually things have subsided. Now, the production unit is gearing up for the release of the second part of the franchise which is set to hit the theaters on 28th of April this year. 

Trailer of the second part was recently unveiled in a grand audio launch graced by superstars of Tamil cinema. Now, the production house has shared the trailer on social media.
