R Parthiban is an unconventional director and actor in Tamil cinema. He is best known for his unique attempts at filmmaking. His last two works were 'Oththa Seruppu' - a single-actor film and 'Iravin Nizhal' - a non-linear one-shot film. Now, he has opened up about his next project.

Parthiban made his debut in the film industry as a director and actor with the 1989 film, 'Pudhiya Paadhai'. He recently revealed to an entertainment portal that a sequel to Pudhiya Paadhai is going to be his next. He said, "I have been contemplating what’s next for some time now. Pudhiya Paadhai is close to my heart, and I have decided to make its sequel."

Parthiban further added "In fact, I will be playing the lead role in the sequel as well. The pre-production work is on now, and everything else is in the initial stage. The film will be based on today’s technology and innovation." Meanwhile, he is also working on the script of a biopic drama about vintage Tamil superstar MK Thyagaraja Bhagavathar.

Parthiban said that he will be working on the Dark Web first because the other film needs a higher budget. “I have been researching Bhagavathar and his life and the biopic is shaping up well. But the production cost of this film is too high, and it’s difficult to start it immediately,” he says.
