The shooting of Karthi’s new film tentatively titled ‘Karthi 18’ has commenced with auspicious pooja. Karthi, who is awaiting the release of Dev, has joined hands with director Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagaram fame.
The principal shooting of the yet-untitled film will start on December 17. Karthi’s upcoming film will be produced by SR Prabhu and SR Prakash Babu under their home banner Dream Warrior Pictures.
The film will not have any heroines and features Naren(Anjathey), Ramana and George Mariyaan in important roles. Talks are going on with few more actors and actresses for prominent roles. This is an interesting decision to not have a heroine in a big film like this.
According to sources, the decision was taken since the film is an out and out action thriller and there is no space for heroine in the script.
“The director has decided that as the script does not need a female lead, Karthi will not be romancing this time,” sources said.
Major portions of the film will be shot in Chennai and Tirunelveli. Dream Warrior Pictures has produced critically acclaimed movies like Joker, Kashmora, Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, and Aruvi.
A statement from the makers said: “The film will be an out and out action thriller made in grandeur. 70% of the film will comprise of mind-blowing action blocks. The stunt masters Anbariv are now choreographing a special action sequence.”
