Karthi looks intense in bloodied first look poster of Kaithi. See pic
Tamil actor Karthi was last seen in Dev, playing an urban globetrotter from an affluent background. Now he is all set to play an intense character in his next, Kaithi.
The first look poster of the film was released on Friday. Sharing it on Twitter, Karthi wrote: “A full-fledged action thriller. Happy to be working with a lot of good actors and technicians.”
The poster features Karthi as possibly a bearded prisoner, who is watching from behind bloodied bars of what appears to be a prison cell.
The film will be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, who shot to fame with Maanagaram and will not feature a leading lady.
In a recent interview to Times of India, Kanagaraj said: “Karthi does have a romantic interest in this film, but this character will not be on screen. However, audiences will not feel the absence of the heroine. It is an out-and-out action thriller, and will be intense and emotional.”
He also went on to add that 70 per cent of the film has been shot in and around Chennai and Tirunelveli.
The film also stars Narain, Dheena and George Mariyan in important roles. Sam CS has been roped in to compose the music.
Apparently, the film will be high on raw action and Karthi will be seen sporting a thick, bearded look for his role.
Kaithi is on the verge of completion. If the grapevine is anything to go by, Karthi will next shoot for a yet-untitled film with director Jeethu Joseph.
The project will also star his sister-in-law Jyothika in the lead role.
