Actor director Parthiban has roped in Shanthanu for his upcoming film Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga. The film will have Partiban’s unique sensibilities. The director has already shot quite a bit of the movie without the film’s leads. He has now confirmed that Shanthanu Bhagyaraj and Parvathy Nair will be playing the leads.
Apparently Parthiban wanted to cast a debutant in the male lead role but he finally selected Shanthanu as he feels the young actor has not been given his due and is still struggling to find success. Parthiban says that it would be a fitting tribute to Bhagyaraj – his mentor if he could give his son Shanthanu a break.
Parvathy Nair has already proved her acting credentials in Yennai Arinthal and Uttama Villain. Parthiban has however not confirmed if Shanthanu and Parvathy have a romantic pairing in teh film.
