Karthi's 'Sardar,' directed by P S Mithran, is now in post-production. The cast and crew recently uploaded a humorous video of Karthi dubbing for the film, which included Mithran.
Mithran, who released the video clip, asked Karthi to dub in Kamal Haasan style in ‘Nayakan’ because the line he was about to dub was inspired by 'Nayakan.' Karthi humorously requests that he speak in Kamal sir's style and then adds that he will do it in whatever way he can.
Karthi will be seen in a dual role as a youthful officer and an old prisoner in the cop drama. Rajisha Vijayan and Raashi Khanna play the female leads. Laila is making a comeback and plays an important part in the film, which also stars Bollywood actor Chunky Pandey. The film will release on Diwali 2022. Karthi also has 'Viruman' and 'Ponniyin Selvan' in the works, both of which will also release before 'Sardar' on August 15th and September 30th, respectively.
The creators secured the agreement for Sardar's OTT distribution even before its release. According to some reports, Sardar will release on OTT after its theatrical release. Aga Tamil ODT, a Tamil digital streamer, has acquired digital rights. According to sources, a contract worth roughly Rs.20 crore has been signed.
