Dhanush is presently shooting for his upcoming film with director Mari Selvaraj. Produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu under his banner V Creations, the film had titled as Karnan. The film is currently progressing at a brisk pace in Tirunelveli. Malayalam actress Rajisha Vijayan, Lal and Yogi Babu in important roles.
Though the makers haven't officially announced the title of Karnan, the news about the title has already leaked. Now, the film has landed in trouble as Sivaji Ganesan's ardent fans have condemned the use of Karnan as the title. The title Karnan is synonymous with Sivaji Ganesan's legendary character.
Chandrasekharan, President of Sivaji Social Welfare Association, wrote a letter to producer S Thanu. He wrote, "We all know that Karnan is legendary Sivaji Ganesan sir's classic film. Now we have come to know that your film with Dhanush is titled Karnan. It would be great if you could add a prefix or suffix instead of repeating the title of Sivaji's classic film as it hurts the sentiment of ardent fans."
