Ponniyin Selvan: Part-2
Release date: April 28

Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan: Part-1 was a huge success last year in the original Tamil. The Hindi version did fair business too.

The first part -- starring Vikram, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi, Trisha, Jayaram, Aishwarya Lekshmi and Sobhita Dhulipala -- ended on a cliffhanger and the intrigue factor should bring audiences back.
