With Aayirathil Oruvan that kept him busy for more than a year inching towards completion, Parthiban has began the brainstorming sessions for Vithagan and his vigorous search for a new heroine in all the possible places including the Internet!
Parthiban said that he knew too well that Aayirathil Oruvan would take a year to complete and was prepared for it. Saying that he loved his challenging role in it, he added that he was quite happy working with a talented director like Selvaraghavan. He said, "You will know why it took so long for us to complete Aayirathil Oruvan. It is a film worth waiting for."
