“We’re in talks and it’s too early to confirm it at this juncture. I was able to meet him earlier today and he’s interested in the project. He has not seen the film. He will watch the film and then give his word,” Parthiban was quoted in a report by Cinema Express.
Upon its release last year, Oththa Seruppu opened to raving reviews and critical acclaim. The film even managed to make it to a couple of international film festivals before its theatrical release.
A few days ago, Parthiban announced his next project, titled Iravin Nizhal. It will be Asia’s first single shot film. Parthiban had shared the news by unveiling the poster of the film. No other details regarding the project have been revealed yet. However, it is already known that Parthiban will also play the leading role.
Iravin Nizhal will reportedly go on the floors early next year. He had revealed that it’s equal to doing ten films. Parthiban, who has several acting assignments in his kitty, will also be seen in a crucial role in Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan.
