Mahesh Babu and Mani Ratnam ‘Ponniyin Selvan called off

Gossip winery is abuzz that Mani Ratnam’s dream project Ponniyin Selvan that is to be made with Mahesh Babu, Vijay and Arya had been put on the backburner! This film is a historical movie set in period backdrop and needs crores of rupees.

A rough estimate says that Ponniyin Selvan needs at least Rs. 100 crores. That is a huge amount and many producers including few corporate groups are not ready to risk on this movie. Also this film lacks commercial elements says the buzz. Hence, no one is willing to spend so much money on it and Mani Ratnam’s previous film Raavan’s result is making them to think twice.

Hence, Mahesh Babu, Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan is called off for the moment. It will go to sets if any producer comes forward to invest 100 crores in it. Bad news indeed.
