Director-actor Parthiepan recently had a launch party to reveal the trailer for his latest film, "Oththa Seruppu Size 7". He had taken on the mammoth task of directing, producing and starring in it.

His friend, Rajnikanth, was not able to attend it but sent his wishes via a video message.

"I was quite disappointed with Parthiepan because he started focusing on his acting career and left a gap in filmmaking. He is a unique filmmaker so having him not there was quite disheartening and I told him just that. That's when he told me about "Oththa Seruppu Size 7". Sunil Dutt had acted in a similar film titled "Yaadein", and the film became a massive hit. What Parthiepan has done is the first attempt in Indian cinema history, he produced, directed and also played the lead role."

Rajinikanth had also shared four tips to create a successful film.

1. The concept must be original and have a good message.
2. The budget of the film should be kept at a minimum.
3. Realistic filmmaking is the key, nothing overly dramatic.
4. The film needs a good amount of publicity.

"'Oththa Seruppu Size 7" has got all the first three factors and with the presence of my friends Kamal Haasan, Shankar and K Baghyaraj at the audio launch, the film will also get the much-needed publicity. I wish Parthiepan a great box office success and more awards including Academy Award", Rajinikanth concluded in the video.
