Chennai, August 17 - Filmmaker Mani Ratnam's magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan 1 is getting ready for the worldwide release on September 30.

The epic period action drama film will be released in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada languages and it will become the first ever Tamil film to release in IMAX format also. The production house of the film, Lyca Productions has set a partnership with IMAX Corporation to bring this highly-anticipated film to IMAX screens in India and worldwide on September 30.

Based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's classic Tamil-language novel, "PS1" boasts a powerhouse cast including Chiyaan Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha Krishnan, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sobhita Dhulipala, Prabhu, Sarath Kumar, Jayaram, Prakash Raj, Jayachitra, Rahman, Vikram Prabhu, Ashwin Kakumanu, Lal, Parthiban and Riyaz Khan.

The movie, set in the 10th century, revolves around the early life of Chola Prince Arunmozhi Varman who was latterly known as the great Chola emperor Raja Raja Chola and was the most powerful king in South India at the time. He is known for reinstating the Chola empire's hegemony and ensuring its supremacy in Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean.

Megan Colligan, president of IMAX Entertainment, said (via Variety), "IMAX continues to be a global destination for fandom of all kinds, and "Ponniyin Selvan: Part I" is a perfect example of how we're continuing to enhance and diversify our content portfolio on the international stage. We're grateful for the opportunity to work with Lyca Productions to bring this film to the big screen and we cannot wait to be able to give audiences an unforgettable experience. We remain committed to the Indian film market as it continues to grow and local language blockbusters like this film remain a crucial part of our international footprint".
