Actor karthi got a festive release this diwali with the release of the action-packed mass entertainer Kaithi directed by lokesh kanagaraj and bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures and the movie made on a tight budget has smashed another big-budget movie which has become a disaster.

After watching asuran, Superstar mahesh babu has watched Kaithi which was simultaneously released in telugu as well and he shared "Khaidi... new age filmmaking...thrilling action sequences and stellar performances in a gripping script... no songs!! A welcome change :) Congratulations to the entire team @Karthi_Offl @itsNarain @sathyaDP @SamCSmusic @DreamWarriorpic and @Dir_Lokesh!!". Now, as per reports, he has shelved Vamsi's movie and has approached lokesh for a new movie. The actor is likely to work under him as he already worked with vijay for 'Master'. lokesh who wanted to direct rajinikanth should wait for more time and he is likely to direct mahesh up next.
