“I will repeat, repeat forever. Thank you so much for the beginning. For Iruvar, for Raavan, Guru and today, Ponniyin Selvan. Thank you so much sir for giving me the opportunity to grow and to learn and grow in my craft. I am still learning and will continue to learn. So thank you for every opportunity, to enjoy this magical world of cinema, and this incredible craft that we are blessed to have the opportunity to explore and discover. And thank you for giving me the opportunity to do this with you so many times. This movie has been magical from the word go,” she said.
In Ponniyin Selvan 2, Aishwarya will reprise her dual roles of Queen Mandakini and Queen Nandini.
