Tamil filmmaker and actor Parthiban lost his temper at the single and teaser launch event of his upcoming film Iravin Nizhal on Sunday evening. Academy Award winner A. R. Rahman, who has composed the music for the upcoming film, had also attended the event and was taken aback by the director's actions when he hurled his microphone toward the audience. Parthiban and A. R. Rahman were interacting in a one-on-one conversation with the audience at the Iravin Nizhal teaser launch event when actor-comedian Robo Shankar had requested the director to pass the microphone, which led to him losing his cool. Parthiban is seen telling Robo Shankar, "You should have asked this before," prior to the mic being thrown. Later, upon realizing his mistake, Parthiban issued an apology and said that he had been under a lot of pressure over the past few days regarding the event and repented for his actions without thinking properly about the outcome. 

Iravin Nizhal is the world's first non-linear single-shot feature film and Parthiban has written the story, screenplay, and dialogues of the film apart from serving as the director and playing the lead role. Other names in the film include Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Robo Shankar, Priyanka Ruth, Brigida Saga, Sneha Kumar, Anand Krishnan, Chandru in pivotal roles and has been produced by Parthiban's Bioscope LLP in association with Akira Productions.

Iravin Nizhal is Parthiban's next after the critically-acclaimed Otha Seruppu Size 7, which fetched him his third National Award. Apart from A. R. Rahman and Parthiban being the major USPs, the film also has Oscar winner Craig Mann as the sound editor, followed by Cottalango Leon as the VFX Supervisor, Arthur A Wilson as the cinematographer and RK Vijai Murugan for the art direction. Iravin Nizhal's run time has been revealed to be 100 minutes (1 hour 40 minutes) and is made completely as a single shot, with the post-production works currently underway.
