2013 has been the year of Sivakarthikeyan. He had a hat-trick of super hits – Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, Ethir Neechal and Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam.

 At the end of the year Sivakarthikeyan has turned out to be red hot in Kollywood. His forthcoming film Maan Karate was sold all areas before release for a whopping Rs 20 Crore, making him a star.

In Maan Karate, Sivakarthikeyan plays a timid kick boxer who due to circumstances becomes brave.  And his next film to start in New Year produced by Dhanush and directed by Durai Senthilkumar has him playing a cop.

The film written by Pattukottai Prabhakar has been titled Taana. In the film Sivakarthikeyan will portray the role of an angry Dirty Harry type of cop. So it looks like the actor is going to take the action avatar in 2014.
