Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire), Ponniyin Selvan: Part Two (Tamil version) is the second of a two-part series retelling the 10th-century story of the rise of the Chola dynasty in South India, starring Vikram, Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha Krishnan, Sobhita Dhulipala, and Aishwarya Lekshmi.
