Though Karunas is a comedian in reel life, he proved himself as good humanitarian in real life. Recently, he announced that he would be using the 100-acre land he has purchased near Madurai to build an old-age home for destitute and elderly people. The work is in progress and very soon the actor will inaugurate this home for olds. Now the actor exposed his noble heart through extending his help to a poor student.
Karunas was in Dindigul shooting for Dindigul Sarathy (the remake of Vadakku Nokki Yanthiram), in which he plays a lead role for the first time. One of the spectators, a cobbler had come with the mark sheet of his son, who had scored high marks in his plus two examination.
He told Karunas that he wanted to admit his son to a teacher training course, but couldn't do so due to his poverty. Karunas immediately gave him Rs. 50000 on the spot. The old man was in tears and thanked the actor a lot. Now he admitted his son in a teacher training school. Karunas also assured that he will help the poor students in future also.
