Ramji of Paruthiveeran fame was initially roped in to handle cinematography in Vijay Sethupathi’s Karuppan with director Paneerselvam of Renigunda fame. Now after completing the first schedule, Ramji has been replaced by Shakthi, who earlier worked with director Paneerselvam in Renigunda.
Apparently, Ramji had schedule clash with Sivakarthikeyan’s big budget action entertainer Velaikkaran so he reportedly told Paneerselvam that he had to opt of the project.
Shakthi is also the cinematographer for Guru, the Telugu remake of Irudhi Suttru starring Venkatesh and Ritika Singh. Produced by AM Ratnam of Yennai Arindhaal and Vedalam fame, Lakshmi Menon plays the female lead in Karuppan.
