A popular face among the Kannada film audience, Rashmika made her Tollywood debut last year with Geetha Govindam. She is currently basking in the box office success of her latest film Yajamana, in which she has shared screen space with Darshan.
Producer SR Prabhu of Dream Warriors has termed this as an ambitious project. He tweeted, “Happy to start this ambitious project. This is going to be Big & great fun!! #Karthi19 #NGKUpdate soon (sic).”

Karthi has given bulk dates to director Bakkiyaraj Kannan as his ongoing project Kaithi with director Lokesh Kanagaraj is fast nearing the completion.
The first look poster of Kaithi was released recently and has caught the attention of the cinephiles. It is Lokesh Kanagaraj’s second outing after his highly appreciated thriller Maanagaram.
Speculations are also rife that the star is also in talks with Malayalam filmmaker Jeethu Joseph for a family drama, in which he is likely to share screen space with his real-life sister-in-law Jyothika.
