Not only has the remarkable music of Paper Rocket captivated everyone's imagination but its recently released trailer has left everyone awestruck. Mounted as one of the biggest launch events ever for any web series, the trailer launch was attended by the who's who from the Chennai movie industry. 

Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India, said “After the success of the movie Veetla Vishesham, we are happy to add another gem – 'Paper Rocket' to our content library within the month of July. With great music, the series is a heart-warming tale that encapsulates the ups and downs of life. At ZEE5, our aim is to expand the entertainment canvas by providing the audience with content in a wide variety of genres. We are sure that Paper Rocket is another series that audience will love.”  

Siju Prabhakaran, Chief Cluster Officer- South, Zee Entertainment Enterprise Ltd., said, “The series on ZEE5 are consistently garnering a spectacular response. Directed by Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, it throws light on what life is all about. I am happy that it has come out very well. I herby request members of the press and the audiences to watch this series and extend their support.” 

An elated Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi , the Director said, “Paper Rocket is special and close to my heart. The entire process of materializing this series endowed upon me an enjoyable experience. This series involves some of the biggest names in the industry. While series-based Thriller genres, often become the cherry-pick for any OTT platform owing to its success graph, I would like to thank Zee5 for banking trust on Paper Rocket and facilitating a wide release. Sreenidhi Sagar is the best producer I have worked till the date. The actors have elevated the intensity of the script with their phenomenal performances, and the technicians have adorned it with their impeccable contribution. Sound Design has played a prominent part in this series, and I thank Tapas Nayak sir for his wonderful work. I can assure you all that Paper Rocket will endow you with good experience.”
 
Actor-producer Udhayanidhi Stalin said, “Firstly, I would like to thank Zee5. This series will achieve success, and I extend my advance wishes over its success to the entire cast and crew, who have been a part of it. Although Kiruthiga had lots of personal issues while making this series, she has done a great job by completing it successfully. This project is very dear to her and she really has exerted herself on this with a lot of hard work. She has made good entertaining movies that have lots of importance for love and romance, but whenever I approach her asking if she has got any scripts for me, it would be just 'Crime-Thrillers'. I am glad her dedication has shaped this project. I wish everyone on the team great success in this series.” 

Actor Silambarasan said, “Firstly, I would like to thank Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Stalin sir and Udhayanidhi anna for being great support when my father's health was ill. Udhayanidhi is so easily accessible, and he never misses extending his help to everyone, who approaches him. It's not just about helping during the need of medical emergency, but he makes sure to enquiring about the condition very often, which is something beyond the regular humanitarian grounds. I and Kiruthiga madam were supposed to work together on a movie. According to me, there's no such classification in the movie industry as men and women filmmakers, but I doubted if she is happy and enjoying her profession as a filmmaker. However, I am glad and surprised to see her insatiable passion and earnest hard work, which is evident in this output. This series is awesome, and I wish everyone on the team a grand success.” 


Kaushik, ZEE5 said, “This series will appeal to the interest of everyone in both emotional and narrative aspects. I am confident that everyone will like this series.” 

Producer Sreenidhi Sagar said, “I thank my technical crew of this movie for their earnest dedication to this project. As a producer, I am completely satisfied and happy with the way, Paper Rocket has shaped up. Both the actors and technicians are the main reason behind making this series achieve the fabulous output. I request everyone to watch this series and support it.” 

Director Mysskin said, “There's a whole lot of experience imbibed to this series. These days, many have started following the trend of placing good scenes alone in the trailer, which stops the audiences from watching the whole show. In contrast, Kiruthiga has done a neat job with this trailer. She is talented, and I have seen it many times. The show has shaped up very well. It would be nice if everyone starts making movies and shows that have simple, neat, and clear-cut narration, instead of going with a complex structure and confusing the audiences. The show looks amazing, and I wish the entire team grand success.” 
 
Director Mari Selvaraj said, “Kiruthiga has a different perception about the films, and her way of approaching the stories is different. I feel envious watching this beautiful trailer. I am sure that the actors, who have been a part of this show would have earned a new experience. Web series always gives more scope for the actors, and I am confident that the proficiency of many actors in this series will be unveiled soon. I am a huge fan of the Zee5 Original series 'Vilangu'. I wish this crew to make a great impact with this series like Vilangu.”

Kiruthiga has done a fantabulous job as a filmmaker. She had perfect clarity of what she wanted to shoot. A lot of big names in the industry are a part of this show's technical crew. This series is going to be a sure-footed winner, and there's no doubt about it.”

Actor Chinni Jayanth said, “In my 38 years of the acting profession, this is the first time I am getting an opportunity to act in a series. Initially, when I was approached to play an important role in this series, I was asked if I am proficient in swimming, and my answer was 'No'. However, most of my sequences were shot in the sea. It was a great experience to share the screen with Kalidas. I have acted with his father Jayaram and now I am elated to be working with him. This show will offer a unique and different experience for the audiences.”
