It appears that brothers and actors Suriya and Karthi are taking turns to swap their heroines. If Suriya starred opposite Tamannaah, Karthi went a step further and starred opposite her in ‘Paiyaah’ and ‘Siruthai’. Likewise, Suriya would be pairing up opposite Kajal Aggarwal in his upcoming film ‘Maatraan’ after she starred opposite Karthi in ‘Naan Mahaan Alla’.
Karthi would now be starring opposite Anushka in his next film to be directed by Suraaj, known for his commercially successful films in the past. Readers might recall that Anushka starred opposite Suriya in last year’s super-hit film ‘Singam’. Anushkha, who reportedly demands and gets more than Rs.1.5 crores, would surely not have any problems vis-à-vis height with the tall and well-built Karthi!
Presently busy with his next film ‘Saguni’ directed by debutant Shankar Dayal, Karthi would complete the film and get married to Ranjani. After the release of ‘Saguni’, he is likely to start shooting for Suraaj’s film opposite Anushkha, it is learnt. Suraaj is likely to mix up comedy and action in equal measure, as he usually does, in this film which would have Anushka in a ‘meaty’ role.
Sources say that Anushka was the first choice by director Siva to pair up opposite Karthi in this year’s ‘Siruthai’ but Tamannaah had stepped in as the lanky Anushka didn’t have ‘dates’ to star in the film. Interestingly enough, it was Anushka who had played the lead role in ‘Vikramarkudu’, the Telugu film from which ‘Siruthai’ was remade in Tamil!
So what do you think of this new Karthi – Anushka combo?
