Karthi Sivakumar is now three films old. From an uncouth rural youth in Paruthi Veeran to the utterly sophisticated software professional in Paiyya/ Paiyaa, the actor has done each role with ease. The handsome hunk has recently completed Naan Mahaan Alla (directed by Vennila Kabaddi Kuzhu fame Suseenthiran), which is all set to grace theatres tomorrow (August 20, 2010). The trailer of this action-packed drama has already created a lot of buzz in Kollywood. The sizzling chemistry between Karthi and Kajal Aggarwal is also the talk of the town.
“The primary reason is that my character Jeeva in this film is what I am in real life—a happy-go-lucky middle-class guy with whom everybody can easily relate to. I didn’t really ‘act’ in the film as it was ‘me’ on screen. In fact, I had to unlearn lot of things to be myself,” the actor said to a leading English daily.
“Naan Mahaan Alla is a beautiful film; youthful, fresh and pragmatic. It’s about ordinary people and their lives, sans any exaggeration. Neither do I bash up 100 villains at one go, nor do I perform any breathtaking stunts. The story is a slice from our lives and nowhere during the film will one feel that they are actually watching a movie. Every actor has come up with a realistic performance in typical Suseenthiran style!” he added.
The actor has already started his work on his next film Siruthai. “Now, that’s going to be a mass film in which I thrash 1000 goons and spew punch dialogues! Comedian Santhanam is on board and I must say that I share a better chemistry with him than with all my heroines. It’s going to be a drastically different outing,” he revealed.
