Chennai, August 19 - Filmmaker Mani Ratnam is all set show the world he has created with magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan, which he believes became possible because of maverick filmmaker SS Rajamouli. Rajamouli's films have been ahead of their times and it was the "Baahuabli" series that opened the gate for other filmmakers to dream big, breaking the barrier of languages.

During the second single launch of "Ponniyin Selvan 1" in Chennai on August 19, Mani Ratnam spoke about how Rajamouli's "Baahubali" inspired him to make films like "PS". Even though Mani Ratnam always wanted to make PS for the big screen, he said that Rajamouli showed the way with Baahubali that such films can be made and be successful in two-part.

"I want to Thank SS Rajamouli Garu. In a way, he has opened up the doors for all of us that this kind of film (PS) can be made and he has shown us that it can be done in two parts like you can tell a story in 2 parts and be successful. PS1 is possible today because of Bahubali", the filmmaker said.

PS1, produced by Ratnam and Allirajah Subaskaran under Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions, is the first of two cinematic parts based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's 1955 novel Ponniyin Selvan. The film stars an ensemble cast - Chiyaan Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sobhita Dhulipala, Prabhu, R. Sarathkumar, Vikram Prabhu, Jayaram, Prakash Raj, Rahman, and R. Parthiban in key roles.

The movie will be released on 30 September 2022 in Tamil along with the dubbed versions of Hindi, Kannada, Telugu, and Malayalam languages. It will also become the first Tamil movie to release in IMAX screens.
