Mani Ratnam's upcoming magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan: I (PS: I) is all set to release on September 30.

The film stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Chiyaan Vikram and Trisha Krishnan. 

 This film marks actor Aishwarya's reunion with Mani Ratnam after 12 years. 

 In PS: I, Aish plays the role of Nandini, a Pazhuvoor queen.

Actors have kick-started movie promotions and at the press conference recently.

 Aishwarya told News18 about her daughter, Aaradhya's reaction after watching her play a queen.

She said, "She was enthralled and seeing a period drama is always exciting. 

 She did get the opportunity to visit the sets and she was mesmerised and I could see that in her eyes."

"She couldn’t get over it. She told me, ‘Sir, gave me the opportunity to do this,’ and she was simply stunned and so were we.
