Bharathiraja deeply moved by Parthiban’s speech
September 24, 2015
Bharathiraja was deeply moved after hearing Parthiban’s speech at the audio launch for ‘Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum’. This is because Parthiban was initially selected for a role in the movie but was replaced with another actor without even so much of a heads up.
Parthiban made the journey to Madurai even after that and delivered an emotional speech in his trademark style at the audio launch. He left the venue immediately as he had to catch a train immediately.
When Bharathiraja took the stage later on, the director publicly lauded Parthiban for this and expressed his guilt for leaving him out of the project in the first place.
