Actor Karthi was in some sort of a dilemma as to which one to take up and which one to refuse. The actor, whose latest film ‘Siruthai’ opposite Tamannaah has been doing average business across the state, was taking his own time in choosing his next film from the various offers he was being flooded with.
Sources close to him say that he must have listened to nothing less than 70 scripts so far but hadn’t yet come to a conclusion. The directors and assistant directors who narrated scripts to Karthi were some of the leading directors in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada film industries. Still, Karthi was not impressed enough.
An assistant director, who had been working with director Dharani, has managed to do something that many others have tried and failed. Karthi appears to have been deeply impressed by the script narrated by this assistant director and has assured that he would go ahead with the project which would make the latter make his debut as director in Tamil films.
Though Karthi and Suriya had decided sometime back not to star in new directors’ films, Karthi has reportedly made an exception due to the ‘amazing’ script he was narrated. The film is likely to be produced by family friend Gnanavelraja.
