R Parthiban, the filmmaker and actor from the South is upset that his film Oththa Seruppu Size 7 was not chosen at India's official entry to the Oscars.

The filmmaker was speaking on the sides of an event where he said, “I have not seen Gully Boy that was chosen as the official entry for the Oscar but I did read somewhere that it is inspired by a foreign film. My film is original and therefore I am taking the film directly to the Oscar and one screening for the jury members has already been done and I will know the result in December.''

Parthiban's film has only one character played by him. He has also written, directed and produced the film which was released earlier this year. The film has already entered the Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records. He said,  my film has also been taken to the Gloden Globe Awards too and I am very hopeful.''

The two-time national award winner Parthiban has been an actor for more than three decades acted in 60 films and directed 10 films. He said, “I work in commercial films and earn money and spend it on experimental films like Oththa Serruppu Size 7.''

Parthiban's two films Ulle Veliye was remade in Hindi as Mr Azaad and Puthiya Pathai as Benaam Badshah. both starred Anil Kapoor.
