Ponniyin Selvan: Trisha Krishnan discloses why she and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan received scoldings from Mani Ratnam on the sets
 

Trisha Krishnan is currently preparing for the release of Mani Ratnam's forthcoming film, Ponniyin Selvan. Aside from Trisha, the film features Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Karthi, and Jayam Ravi in major roles. Trisha stated in a new interview that she and Aishwarya received scoldings from Mani Ratnam on the sets, and the reason is hilarious.

Talking about her experience of working with Aishwarya, Trisha couldn't stop praising the former Miss World. She finds Aishwarya really gorgeous and mentioned that they had to behave like arch rivals to be in line with their respective personalities.

Trisha and Aishwarya, on the other hand, got along with each other so well that they couldn't stop talking with each other. Their friendly vibe irritated Mani Ratnam who then at times scolded the two actresses since they were not supposed to like each other in the film. "Listen, you people are taking a lot, stop chatting, I can't have this camaraderie for my scene," he said.

Trisha said that Aishwarya is beautiful both inside and out, and that she is the most warm and hardworking of all the actors she has worked with. She added that Aishwarya spoke to her in chaste Tamil like how it has to be spoken. Revealing Aishwarya's routine, Trisha said that the actress would wake up at 2 a.m. and get ready with the crew. Trisha felt privileged to share screen space with her.

In Ponniyin Selvan, Aishwarya plays the role of Queen Nandini while Trisha plays Princess Kundavai in the film, which is based on the famous Tamil novel Ponniyin Selvan by renowned writer Kalki. It will be one of the most expensive undertakings in the country.
