R. Parthiepan, who has time and again revealed his loyalty towards his mentor K. Bhyagyaraj, has termed the latter as the one who has filled the ‘blanks’ in his life.
Parthiepan stands out in choosing very different titles for his films. After making a strong comeback a couple of years ago as a film-maker with the critically acclaimed Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam, he has titled his next directorial venture as Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga (‘Fill in the blanks’), produced jointly by Reel Estate Company and Bioscope Film Framers.
Shantanoo, Parvahy Nair, Thambi Ramaiah and Singampuli play prominent roles in the film which has music by C. Sathya. Arjun Jana is the film’s cinematographer while Prabhu Deva has choreographed the songs in the film, apparently out of his friendship with Parthipean over the years.
“The ‘blanks’ in the film could be about romance, life or anything else; it’s up to the fans to fill them up. When I entered he industry in the late eighties, my life had plenty of blanks which was ably filled up by my guru and mentor K. Bhagyaraj. I’m very happy to be directing his son Shantanoo in this film,” Parthiepan says.
