Parthiban picks Shanthanu for his next

Actor-director R Parthiban had initially started filming portions of his upcoming film Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga without finalising his lead pair at the time of its launch.

And now, the latest development is that he has cast Shanthnu Bhagyaraj and Parvathy Nair as the leads in the film. Remember Parthiban worked as assistant to Bhagyaraj.

“I felt that it was my duty to do something for Shanthnu. He has been trying to make it big, but unfortunately hasn’t been able to succeed so far. I will be glad if I’m behind his success,” said Parthiban.

Recently, he said, “I finalised this title after speaking to an auto driver to check out if a common man will understand what the film would be like.”

Giving more details, he said, “It is a family drama, but it will not be of the usual kind. In fact, the film’s tagline is ‘A film with mistakes’, so I’m acknowledging the fact even before critics point those out.”

In 2014, Parthiban made a strong comeback with Kadhai Thiraikadhai Vasanam Iyakkam. The project starred an all new cast in the lead roles along with several experienced actors in cameo roles and becomes Parthiban’s first directorial film in which he does not feature.
