The fifth was in the name of Indian films. From Bollywood to Tollywood or Kollywood, no industry has returned the audience empty-handed. But the picture that was most practiced before the Puja is 'Ponniyin Selvan' (Ponniyin Selvan). Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has made a comeback in the cinema by the hands of famous director Mani Ratnam's Tamil film. The film also features several popular stars of the Tamil industry.
On September 30, Panniyin Selvan released in multiple Indian languages apart from Tamil. The film's biggest rival at the box office was Bollywood's 'Vikram Vedha', a Hindi remake of a South Indian film. But the audience was curious about how the Hindi remake starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan would turn out.
