After the roaring success of Naan Mahaan Alla, Karthi is currently busy with his next film Siruthai which is all set to grace theatres during Pongal 2011. Siruthai is directed by Tollywood filmmaker Shiva and K.E. Gnanavelraja of Studio Green is producing it. Siruthai is the remake of Telugu hit Vikramakudu starring Ravi Teja and Anushka. For the first time Karthi will play a dual role (a police and a thief) in the film. Tamannaah is the female lead.
According to director Siva, the comedy track of Karthi, Santhanam and Tamannaah will be main highlight of the film. Reportedly there’s a song in which Karthi appears in nine get-ups. The actor has also performed a daring stunt (by jumping off a 150 ft building) for the film. Almost 70% of the film has been shot. The crew is currently in Hyderabad canning a few important scenes.
