Actor Kartikeya Gummakonda took a bold step by acting in a negative role when he is enjoying popularity as a lead hero. He has done a negative role in the film Gang Leader. His risk reaped fruits as he got several acclaims for his performance in the film. Now, looks like the young actor has bagged another big chance.
According to the sources, Karthikeya is in consideration to play the villain role in Thala Ajith's upcoming film Valimai. Apparently, the makers of Valimai were impressed with Kartikeya in Gang Leader and have approached him to play the key role in this movie. Currently, the talks are going on and the Rx100 actor is yet to sign the dotted lines.
If he signs the film, it will be a big boost up for his career in Kollywood as he enters the industry with Ajith's film. Anyway, we will get an official confirmation very soon. Directed by H. Vinoth, the shoot of Valimai kickstarted a few days back in Hyderabad.
Yami Gautham will mostly play the female lead in the film. Boney Kapoor is bankrolling the project. This is the second film in the combination of Ajith, Vinoth, and Boney, after the recent hit Nerkonda Parvaai.
