Karthi's latest release, Dev, did not set the cash registers ringing but his upcoming movies' line-up looks very impressive and sure to make it big at the box office. His very next release would be Kaithi, with director Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagaram fame. The movie has already been creating quite some buzz online and with no heroine nor any songs, the movie seems to be a taut action thriller. Meanwhile, Karthi is also shuttling between the sets of his next movie with Papanasam director Jeethu Joseph and his 19th movie, with director Bakkiyaraj Kannan. Reports state that he would finish both these movies before beginning work on Mani Ratnam's multi-starrer Ponniyin Selvan, in which he plays one of the leads.
