After Ponniyin Selvan 1, Mani Ratnam’s PS 2 release is imminent, and the lead actors Vikram, Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha Krishnan, Aishwarya Lekshmi and Sobhita Dhulipala are busy promoting the film. In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, the cast also opened up the possibility of prequels and spin-offs featuring the film’s characters. Is there a chance for that? ‘Mani Sir has to get it. If he is, we’re ready,” Trisha shares.

Aishwarya Lekshmi also adds, “All the characters are well-written, so spin-offs are possible for each character. There’s a lot we haven’t seen on screen so far. So if Mr. Mani agrees, we will all be happy to do it. In Ponniyin Selvan, Aishwarya Lekshmi plays Poonguzhali aka Samuthirakumari.

Sobhita Dhulipala about her on-screen persona

Meanwhile, Sobhita talks about how Mani Ratnam helped her play her character Vaanathi. “There was quite a bit of curiosity because in the books my character Vaanathi is painfully shy and embodies innocence, and by default one would assume a certain kind of behaviour, a certain kind of personality. But I really enjoyed how Mr. Mani was not attached to a stereotyped definition of innocence, I was very relieved,” the actress recalled.

She explains, “He was like, don’t be coy, don’t be deliberately cute, don’t be any of that. Just be free-spirited, that’s harmless too. Just be yourself, just be without a filter, that too is innocence. So redefining innocence in that way… I think that’s something I really enjoyed, felt relieved, and I think it’s quite remarkable that he defines things the way he sees them.”
