Aayirathil Oruvan producer Raveendran had complained with the powerful Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) that Karthi is not co-operating with him.
Karthi who has been held up due to the delay in shooting this Selvaraghavan film wanted to move on and start work for Lingusamy's Paiyya, which was to start on December 5 with a photo shoot on the lead pair- Karthi and Nayanthara.
After Raveendran's plea, TFPC has requested Karthi not to take off his shaggy beard, till he completes Aayirathil Oruvan.
Karthi has now reluctantly agreed to shoot for the film in Pondicherry location from Saturday and later for a scene leading to the climax in Andaman.
Now it looks like Lingusamy's film will be delayed and start rolling only by January middle.
