Karthi is undoubtedly one of the most popular stars in the Tamil film industry today. During his reasonably successful/eventful career, he has carved a niche for himself thanks to his charismatic personality, sincere performances and humble nature. Moreover, the 40-year-old has delivered some successful films and proved his mettle as a performer.
Perhaps that is why a recent report about him collaborating with filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj created quite a buzz in the industry and send fans into a state of frenzy. Now, it seems that the upcoming director has not finalised the cast of the film yet.
“I’m yet to narrate my script to Karthi. What’s confirmed as of now is that my next film will also be produced by S.R. Prabhu (producer of ‘Maanagaram’). In a month’s time, we will finalise the lead cast and make an official announcement, “he told a leading news agency.
In case you did not know, Lokesh made his directorial debut with ‘Maanagaram’ which hit screens earlier this year and received rave reviews upon release. A thriller, it featured Sundeep Kishan and Regina Cassandra in the lead.
As far as far as Karthi is concerned, he was last seen in ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’ which hit screens earlier this year. In the Mani Ratnam-directed romantic-drama, he was seen opposite Aditi Rao Hydari and delivered a sincere performance.
At present, he has ‘Thereran Adhigaram Ondru’ in his kitty. Touted to be an action-thriller, it is being directed by H Vinoth and also features Rakul Preet Singh in the lead.
