Paruthiveeran seems to be the talk of the town now. Critics as well as fans are raving about the film and especially over Karthi's performance in it. "Director Ameer' is the reason behind my success," says Karthi modestly. When Karunanidhi saw a special screening of Paruthiveeran, he said, "Why did you make such a climax? I don't think I will be able to sleep for the next 3 months!" Karthi is to star next in Selvaraghavan's Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam, but the film will take some more time to start. Before that, he is to go on a small tour with Ameer. "I want to tour Tamilnadu with Ameer and see how people are reacting to Paruthiveeran," says Karthi.
It seems Karthi has still not decided if he should take up commercial roles or adapt himself as an actor according to the story. He is very happy about the 2 films of his sis-in-law Jyotika. "I am very happy that my film Paruthiveeran got released at the same time as Jyotika's Pachaikili Muthucharam and Mozhi. Both her films are doing very well. Even though all 3 films got released around same time, there is no competition between our films." He's just one film old and is already talking about competition.
