The film Azhagu Raja which had Karthi in the lead role was released for Deepavali but this film was not a great success as expected. Now, Karthi has pinned his hopes in his film Biryani directed by Venkat Prabhu. Karthi is currently acting in a film titled Kaali directed by Ranjith who had earlier directed the hit film Attakathy.
At this juncture, Karthi has been signed for a film to be directed by Santha Kumar. Santha Kumar had earlier directed the critically acclaimed film Mouna Guru. Arulnithi, Iniya and John Vijay had starred in this film.
Now Santha Kumar will be directing Karthi in a film which will have a totally different storyline. This film is to be produced by Studio Green. The heroine and title is yet to be finalized.
