Thanks to the success of Siruthai which released early this year, Karthi has a few projects lined up ahead of him. First and foremost of them is Saguni whose shooting schedule has almost come to an end. Directed by debutant director Shankar Dayal, the film has Karthi indulging in his usual gimmicks and adopting ‘clever’ tactics to wriggle himself out of touch situations. Pranitha (of remember her in Udhayan?) has been paired opposite Karthi in this film.
Even as Karthi is busy with the film’s final schedule of shooting, it is said that he had already started work on his next film which is directed by Siva who made Siruthai early this year. Reports say that prior to wrapping up Saguni, Karthi took a day off to take part in the launch of his next film and even participated in the shoot which was held on that day. The film is as yet untitled, it is said.
Produced by his relative Gnanavel Raja’s Studio Green, Karthi has been asked by Siva to register the title of Kaththi(Knife in English) for the film. Karthi, in turn, has asked his uncle to get the title registered with the Producers’ Council at once. When Gnanavel Raja went to the Council to register the name, he found out that the title had already been registered with the Council by Sun Network.
When he asked them to part with the title, the CEO of Sun Pictures told him that they were about to produce a new film with the title. For the time being, though, Gnanavel has registered another title Kathiyin Kaththi as the title of his new film.
