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 level decreases.
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.
