At the trailer launch of his Diwali release Kaithi, Karthi the hero of the film said: “While I was working as an assistant director, I aspired to make a few films. Later, when I became an actor, films like Madras and Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru were similar to what I really wanted to make as a filmmaker. Now, Kaithi will also be on the same lines”.
“I always like to explore a landscape and then adapting myself to the character set in that backdrop. There were a lot of challenges in the film but I enjoyed doing it. Lokesh Kanagaraj knows how to present the film to the audiences. I told him to try as many new things as possible, the entire team has done it”, added Karthi.
“Narain is a good friend, he is someone who is always ready to do anything for friendship. I would call Kaithi as a multistarrer, each actor has good scope in the film”, said Karthi who also said Kaithi is a full-fledged action film. “Our stunt choreographers Anbariv didn’t even go home. Generally, I love action films and in Kaithi, I had to drive lorry which was a tedious process. I’m sure this film will win big and earn a good name for all of us”, he said.
Narain said: “I think Kaithi will kick start my second innings in the film industry. Lokesh exactly knows how to commercially narrate a film, his team has surprised me on many occasions. Both sentiment and action elements in the film will attract you”.
“I should thank my producer SR Prabhu for attempting a film without songs and a heroine. I though such stereotypes can never be broken but Karthi sir immediately agreed to do the film. If not for the presence of Karthi sir, Kaithi wouldn’t have happened”, said Lokesh Kanagaraj.
The trailer which got released last night clocked in more than 1.4 million views on YouTube.
From the trailer, it’s clear that Karthi plays Dilli, an escaped prisoner who was in jail for a long ten years and his journey with a cop who is on the run from a deadly smuggling gang. Dilli also should also meet his daughter whom he has never seen in life!
