Actor Karthi is riding on a high as his recently released film Kaidhi is fetching overtly positive reviews from all quarters. The film which is dubbed in Telugu as Khaidhi is running successfully in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana despite stiff competition from Bigil.
Karthi recently went to Hyderabad to promote Khaidhi. During one of the interaction, he opened up about his next film. We had earlier reported that he will team up with his sister-in-law Jyothika for a family thriller. Jeethu Joseph of Drishyam fame will direct the film.
Speaking about the film, he said, "My next is a family thriller, which is directed by Jeethu Joseph of Drishyam fame. My sister-in-law Jyothika is playing my sister while Sathyaraj sir will be seen as my father in the film. The shooting of the film has been wrapped up as well. It's a very interesting film which has the flavours of Drishyam. It's a performance-oriented film with a lot of humour. My character in the film is like Seenu from Oopiri (Thozha)."
Meanwhile, Karthi is gearing up to play one of the lead roles in director Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan. He will portray a different look in the film and is growing his hair to suit his look. Ponniyin Selvan will go on floors in January 2020.
