In Kaithi, Karthi would have played the role of a prisoner, who goes in search of his daughter once released. He gets caught with a Police Officer, who is on a drug bust mission. The movie received great appreciation, and was recalled even recently after it was linked to Lokesh’s Vikram. It is to be noted that the Lokiverse is most likely to connect the worlds of Kaithi and Vikram into one huge blockbuster film. This film will have actor Suriya, reprising his role as Rolex.
Lokesh Kanagaraj is currently working on Thalapathy 67’s script. While the official announcement is still to be made, reports suggest that the director is working on the script and he will make it official once it is ready. In many interviews so far, he has confirmed that Vijay’s 67 is with Lokesh only. However, he is awaiting the Production House to make an official announcement instead.
Apart from Viruman, Karthi is also awaiting the release of Sardar and Ponniyin Selvan. He is playing Vallavarayan Vandhiyadevan in the latter film, which is a pivotal role that carries the story forward.
