Children of veteran actors and technicians have been venturing into cinema as actors and some of the recent examples would be Dhruv Vikram and Aadhitya Baaskar. The already proven next generation actors include Suriya, Karthi, Atharvaa Murali, Jayam Ravi, Jiiva, Atharvaa Murali, Gautham Karthik and Sibi Sathyaraj, to name a few. The latest to join this list is newbie Keerthi Pandian, daughter of veteran actor and producer Arun Pandian. Keerthi Pandian will be making her Kollywood debut as an actor through Kanaa fame Darshan's next film, to be directed by debutant Harish Ram.
This film will have music directors duo Vivek - Mervin composing the score, with rockstar Anirudh Ravichander composing one song, as a guest music director. An official statement from Keerthi Pandian came out this morning, in which she said, "I had rejected many projects that went on to become blockbusters. I don’t regret missing them for I didn’t find anything phenomenal with the female lead role in there. I never wanted to show, where I come from. I attended many auditions just with the name Keerthi Pandian and got rejected as well. As I said, some of the films I rejected turned to be blockbusters. All that I aspire and want to accomplish is to become a performer."

Such a Happy and Content Day yesterday! ✨ and thank you for all the wishes! ♥️ #birthday #excitement #always
Being very interested in acting, Keerthi has been involved in a lot of theatre plays. The theatre experience should come in handy for this aspiring actress who is also an expert in the Salsa and Ballet dance forms. After assisting her father Arun Pandian in his distribution business for the past 5 years, this will be a new avenue for Keerthi to explore.
This yet to be titled film is a comedy adventure, directed by Harish Ram, a former associate of director Durai Senthilkumar. Vijay TV fame Dheena is also a part of the cast, apart from Darshan and Keerthi.
