In the next frame, we can see some power-packed action sequences led by Aditha Karikalan (played by Vikram), who has been offered to rule the other half of the Chola Kingdom.
However, it seems Arunmozhi Varman aka Ponniyin Selvan is alive as Kundavai (played by Trisha) questions him about who saved his life, to which he answers, “Nandini”. Next, we see Nandini planning to avenge the death of her father as she can be heard saying, “We will destroy the Cholas.” Towards the end of the trailer, Nandini, who plays the love interest of Aditha Karikalan, comes face to face him.
