Young hero Karthi has been on a high, since last year's striking failure with Maniratnam directorial silver jubilee flick Kaatru Veliyidai, he has made a great comeback with his two releases since then, reaping it big at the box office, becoming blockbusters and saving his career.
Last year Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru brought him back into the game, and this year, Kadaikutty Singam succeeded, and both being varied entertainers, one being a cop thriller and the other, a rural mass entertainer, next, Karthi failed with the release of his road thriller Dev. Rakul Preet did the female lead role in that movie.
Even before the release of Dev, Karthi has begun his next. His 18th movie, Kaithi, touted to be an action thriller was helmed by lokesh Kanagaraj of Managaram fame, will not be having any heroine and is bankrolled by SR Prabhu's Dream Warrior pictures and Vivekananda Pictures. Now, in a similar way, Karthi has begun his next before the release and the team has fixed Rakul Preet for that movie.
