CHAT LIVE with Karthi on Thursday March 29 from 4pm IST
The mega success of Paruthiveeran has made Karthi an overnight sensation and the new heart throb of Tamil cinema. He is tall, handsome and has an endearing charm and enigmatic persona.
It was a bold and daring decision for a newcomer to do the role of Veeran, a guy with a lot of negative shades. All newcomers who are launched by their own production houses prefer a safe debut by playing a chocolate faced
goody-goody guy who dances and fights.
Karthi, son of Sivakumar and younger brother of Surya was a former assistant of Mani Ratnam. He understood the meaning of realistic films within the commercial format. So he took a bold decision to be launched by an off-beat director like Ameer in a film
like Paruthiveeran which was dark, deadly and daring. That's what really makes Karthi different from the other newcomers.
Added to that the young man is cool and showed remarkable patience during the making of the film, which was inordinately delayed?
Now Karthi is on cloud nine as he is receiving a lot of accolades for his performance in Paruthiveeran. But the young hero is not in a hurry to sign up films and has only signed on the dotted line to play hero in Selvaraghavan directed Ithu Malai Nerathu Mayakkam a romantic entertainer which will showcase another facet of his acting abilities.
Karthi is sure to emerge a winner at the superstar race in Kollywood.
