Rajinikanth all praise after watching Mafia teaser

Director Karthick Naren has screened the teaser of his upcoming action thriller film Mafia to Superstar Rajinikanth who seems to have loved the work of the filmmaker and appreciated him.

Uploading a picture of him with Rajinikanth on his social media page, Karthick Naren said, “Brilliant work kanna. Semaya irukku. Loved it” These were Rajini sir’s words after watching the teaser of Mafia. Thank god I did not faint. Blown away by his humility. Thalaivar for a reason.”

According to sources, as Lyca Productions is bankrolling both Mafia and Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Darbar, Karthick Naren got an opportunity to show the teaser of his film to the superstar.

Sources say that the teaser will be screened during the intermission of Suriya’s Kaappaan bankrolled by Lyca. Arun Vijay plays the lead role in Mafia which also has Priya Bhavani Shankar and Prasanna in pivotal characters.

Gokul Benoy of Monster fame has cranked the camera and Jakes Bejoy has composed music while editing is being taken care by Sreejith Sarang.

The shoot of the film was completed recently. “I owe a lot to the entire team for being a complete support in making this happen. I thank my hero Arun Vijay sir, Prasanna sir, Priya Bhavani Shankar and others, who encouraged and supported me thoroughly,” the director said.

He further said: “The technical team was yet another pillar of support, especially cinematographer Gokul Benoy.  If not for the commendable preparations they made during the pre-production phase, this would have not been possible.

I can’t stop thanking my producer Subaskaran sir of Lyca Productions for banking his trust on a filmmaker like me. This was an opportunity that renewed by hopes and energy to move forward and give my best. We will have the post-production works wrapped up soon and producers will bring in lots of announcements shortly.”
