Actor Karthi, who will be seen next in the Tamil/Telugu bilingual Thozha, will essay the role of a pilot in filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s next. The untitled Tamil film will also star Sai Pallavi of Premam fame as the female lead.
“Karthi plays an NRI, who works as a pilot in the film. He falls in love while on a trip to India,” said a source from the film’s unit. Sai Pallavi plays a doctor in the film, which is slated to go on the floors from June.
“Karthi is busy wrapping up Kashmora, and for this project he has shaved his head. He has to wait for three months for his hair to grow back before he starts working on Ratnam sir’s project,” the source said.
The project will have music by AR Rahman and cinematography by Ravi Varman.
