Parthiepan clarifies about Vijay and 'Nanban'

IndiaGlitz [Saturday, May 31, 2014]

Last week Parthiepan had revealed in an interview t that he was supposed to direct 'Nanban' that was the remake of super hit Bollywood flick '3 Idiots'. In that interview the actor director was quoted saying that he wanted Suriya to reprise the role of Aamir Khan instead of Vijay, since he felt that the market for Vijay is entirely different from that of Aamir Khan. Then Shankar came in and Parthiepan opted out of the project.

Now this has been misunderstood or wilfully misinterpreted by some people who have started spreading videos which claim that Parthiepan was supposed to play the role played by Satyaraj in 'Nanban' and he was removed from the film because he insisted that Suriya should be cast the protagonist instead of Vijay.

Parthiepan who noticed this fake video amidst the post production work of his upcoming directorial 'Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam' has sent a press release clarifying about the entire issue.  The 'Ivan' director has reemphasised that the offer to direct 'Nanban' came to him first. The producers were in talk with Vijay as well as Suriya to don the lead role. Simultaneously the makers were also considering roping in Shankar to helm the project. At last the film emerged with Shankar-Vijay combo.

Parthiepan has denied telling anything to anyone about Vijay's casting in the film. He has also expressed his respect for Vijay and said that the actor is at the top only because he has special qualities.

Meanwhile the director has revealed that the audio and trailer of 'KVTI' that have been released last week are receiving tremendous response from film buffs and people in the industry.
