Karthi, who is basking in the success of his recently released movie Madras has already begun his next project Komban. Though he has established himself as a successful actor, his entry into film industry was as an assistant director.
After working as an assistant director under the guidance of ace
filmmaker Mani Ratnam, fate played a vital role in
he becoming an actor instead of a director. Ever since he has
dreamt about acting in a Mani Ratnam's movie.
When asked who was his favourite director, pat came the reply
from the Paiyaa actor who has said, it cannot be
none other than his guide Mani Ratnam. He has also said that he has
been waiting impatiently for a call from the veteran director and
hopes his dream would soon take shape.
Meanwhile, Karthi has eluded a major disaster at the shooting
spot of his upcoming film Komban where he was rescued at
the last minute from a raging water fall which suddenly turned into
a flood where a fight sequence was being shot. The actor is safe
and sound and the shooting is expected to resume once the water
Komban is being directed by M.Muthaiah of Kutti Puli fame and the project is being bankrolled by Studio Green. The film has Lakshmi Menon as its female lead and the music is being taken care by G. V. Prakash Kumar.
