Aishwarya will play the role of Nandini, the wife of Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar, who served as the chancellor and treasurer of the Chola kingdom. It was earlier rumoured that Amitabh Bachchan had been approached for a role opposite Aishwarya but Big B will not be a part of the film. Telugu actor Mohan Babu will reportedly play her husband. Mani Ratnam has also reportedly roped in actors such as Vikram, Simbu and Jayam Ravi.
