With Theeran Adhigaram Ondru, Kadaikutty Singam and the recent release Dev, Karthi has been balancing different genres and premises at this stage of his career. The actor is currently working on his film with Lokesh Kanagaraj, touted to be a complete action thriller that doesn’t even have space for a heroine. Karthi will appear in a rugged look in the film, with a shabby and long beard.
And now, the official word on his next film is out in the open. On Sunday morning, Dream Warrior Pictures confirmed the fact that Karthi will indeed be teaming up with Bakkiyaraj Kannan for a fun-filled entertainer. The film, which will have Rashmika Mandanna making her Tamil debut, will go on floors by the second week of March itself. With the pre-production work in process, sets are being erected for the film’s shoot in Chennai.
Composer duo Vivek-Merwin, who shot to fame with their independent single track Orasaadha last year, have come on board the project along with Sathyan Sooryan who will take care of the cinematography. Dhilip Subbarayan and Ruben have been signed for the stunt and the editing departments respectively. Karthi is looking to complete a majority of his work for the Lokesh Kanagaraj film before the commencement of this film, in order to ensure that both the projects can be completed without eating into each other’s schedules.
