At a promotional event for 7 Aum Arivu in Hyderabad, Karthi stunned audiences by delivering his speech in flawless Telugu! It was a surprise for brother Suriya as well who commended his efforts. Karthi has an enviable fan following in AP as his dubbed films have done fantastic business and now he is doing a proper Telugu film for Bommarillu Bhasker.
One of the first things Karthi did was take diction lessons in Telugu for the role and the result is apparent. Tamil heroines should probably take a leaf out of his book as they continue to get slammed by the critics for their diction in the language.
