Actor Karthi, who is currently busy with Raju Murugan’s Japan, has signed his 27th film with director Nalan Kumarasamy. The film, which is tentatively titled Karthi27, will be produced by K.E. Gnanavel Raja under his banner Studio Green.
Nalan Kumarasamy is known for his quirky and dark comedies such as Soodhu Kavvum and Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum. He has also written the screenplay for Super Deluxe, one of the most acclaimed films of 2019. This will be his third directorial venture and his first collaboration with Karthi.
The cast and crew details are yet to be announced, but it is confirmed that actor Karunakaran, who has worked with Nalan in Soodhu Kavvum, will be part of the project. He shared a tweet from Studio Green’s official handle, which announced the film’s launch.
The genre and plot of the film are still under wraps, but it is expected to be a commercial entertainer with Nalan’s signature style of humour and satire. The film will have music by Santhosh Narayanan, who has composed for Nalan’s previous films as well.
Karthi is one of the most bankable stars of Tamil cinema, who has delivered several blockbuster hits in recent times such as Viruman, Ponniyin Selvan and Sardar. His fans are eagerly waiting for his upcoming releases, which are slated to hit the screens this year.
Nalan Kumarasamy has also signed a two-film deal with Studio Green, which will include a sports drama as well. He is one of the most sought-after directors in the industry, who has a unique vision and style of filmmaking.
Karthi27 is expected to go on floors from the first week of May. The film will be shot in various locations across India and abroad. The makers are planning to release the film in 2024.
