Now that Karthi's debut film Paruthiveeran has been declared the biggest box-office hit of the year, he has a lot of responsibility ahead. He is a star, but today he has to work even harder and has to make the right choice.

It is a tough task, as people are bound to compare him with Paruthiveeran in future. His next film will be Selvaraghavan directed Ithu Malai Nerathu Mayakkam (IMNM), in which he is paired with Sandhya. The shoot of the film is likely to start on May 20, in Chennai.

Karthi of IMNM will be totally different from the bearded ruffian of Paruthiveeran. He will play a sophisticated upmarket stylish guy and he has lost about 10 kilos and wears designer clothes. His large legion of female fans, are going to drool over him. Selva is a specialist in making city based stories, and is likely to give Karthi a change of image.

Meanwhile offers are pouring in for Karthi, but the guy is very choosy. He knows the pitfalls of going on a signing spree and would like to do one film at a time. As of now he plans to do only Lingusamy produced and directed film, which will start rolling only after he completes IMNM.
