Director Thiru, who is known for movies like Naan Sigappu Manithan and Theeratha Vilayattu Pillai, is bringing the father-son duo of Karthik and Gautham Karthik together for the first time onscreen. The latest is that Varalakshmi Sarathkumar and Regina Cassandra have also joined the project. The film is produced by Dhananjayan’s Creative Entertainers and Distributors. The untitled project is touted to be an action-thriller with a special father-son relationship revolving around yesteryear star Karthik and his son Gautham. A major hero from the 80-90s, Karthik was last seen in Dhanush’s Anegan. He played the villain and earned much praise for his performance as well.
Varalakshmi was last seen in Arun Vaidyanathan’s Nibunan and has a plethora of projects lined up. She is part of Vishal’s Sandakozhi 2, the thriller Echcharikkai and Sathya with Sibiraj. Regina, on the other hand, was last seen Gemini Ganesanum Suruli Rajanum with Atharvaa. The actor has Vishnu Vishal’s Sillukuvaarpatti Singam, Madai Thiranthu (1945 in Telugu), Balakrishnudu and Venkat Prabhu’s Party in the pipeline. It is also said that Regina will join the sets by mid-November. Actor Sathish who teamed up with Gautham Karthik in his latest release Hara Hara Mahadevki will provide the laughs in this movie as well.
Thiru’s last venture was 2014 film Naan Sigappu Manithan with actor Vishal. The revenge story revolves around a man with Narcolepsy. With an interesting screenplay, the movie was one of the hits of that year.
