Parthiban, who will next be seen in Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan 2, is planning a couple of directorial projects. He is said to be making a sequel to his movie Puthiya Pathai, which was a trendsetter in the late 80s. 

Though his previous outing Iravin Nizhal courted controversies over his claim of the film being the world's first non-linear project made in a single shot, his 2019 directorial Oththa Seruppu won him several accolades as an actor and a filmmaker. He made its Hindi remake with Abhishek Bachchan as well, but it's been a while an update is revealed on the project.

The actor-filmmaker has now taken to his Twitter page to post a picture in which he is seen clicking a selfie with Mohanlal. The two of them met each other at a private event held in Chennai sometime ago. He wrote that he had plans to remake Oththa Seruppu with Mohanlal in Malayalam.

Parthiban tried his best to pull it off, but the project didn't materialize due to reasons best known to him. Interestingly, the Mollywood superstar's last outing Alone started streaming on Disney+ Hotstar a week ago. The movie, like Oththa Seruppu, features only one actor in it.

Though he revealed that he is yet to watch the Malayalam movie, the attempt seems to have reminded him of his own directorial venture and hence posted the picture featuring the two. When one of his followers lauded Oththa Seruppu and criticized Alone, he pointed out that his intention was not to compare the two films.

However, he said that he has been observing a few people making comparisons ever since the Mollywood movie started streaming online. Movie buffs are now eager to know what new experiment Parthiban is going to come up with next.
