R Parthiban is playing a dual role in Bharathiraja‘s ‘Annakodiyum Kodi Veeranum‘, which is expected to go on floors by September. “It is a lifetime project and I am extremely happy to work with the Iyakkumar Imayam,” he says.
Besides Parthiban, the film will have Priyamani, Parvathi Menon of ‘Poo‘ fame, Meenal and a host of newfaces in pivotal roles. Remember Priyamani was introduced to Kollywood by Bharathiraja in ‘Kangalal Kaidhu Sei‘.
Adds Parthiban, who is a student of K Bhagyaraj, who in turn is a student of Bharathiraja, “I am thankful to Bharathiraja for choosing me for the project. He could have selected any leading hero for the character I am doing in this film.”
‘Annakodiym Kodi Veeranum‘, according to Bharathiraja, is his dream project and his challenge to young filmmakers. “I will prove myself once again with this film,” he said earlier. G V Prakash Kumar is composing music.
