Parthepan clears air on Vijay - Suriya controversies
However, the actor, in a press release, refuted such rumours and revealed, “The truth is that I was initially asked to direct the 3 idiots remake and I heard that the producers were talking to both Vijay and Suriya for the lead role. Finally, Shankar, whose name was also under consideration, was announced as the director, with Vijay as the hero. Interestingly, it was Vijay who had recommended my name for the film. So, why would I not want him on board the project?”
There was also a controversy that Parthepan was claiming to ‘properly’ introduce editor R Sudharsan with his film, while the editor was already introduced by the late director Manivannan. The actor clarified that it was a printing mistake that led to such a misunderstanding and added that he had mentioned Manivannan at a press meet that was held after the audio launch of his film.
