The Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of ‘Makkal Selvan’ Vijay Sethupathi’s rural action entertainer ‘Karuppan’ have been procured by Picture Box Company Alexander for a record price. Directed by Paneerselvam of Renigunda fame, AM Ratnam is producing the film through Sri Sai Raam Creations.
Sources say that both AM Ratnam and Alexander are planning to release Karuppan in September and soon, an official announcement will be made. Imman is scoring the music for Karuppan and Sakthivel has cranked the camera.
Karuppan’s first look poster featuring Vijay Sethupathi taming a bull went on to become viral and now, the blockbuster status of the actor’s Vikram Vedha will surely bring a massive opening to the film.
Tanya Ravichandran is Vijay Sethupathi’s pair in Karuppan and Bobby Simha plays the baddie.
