Itâ€™s been a fabulous year so far for Gautham Karthik, who has impressed with films such as Ivan Thanthiran, Rangoon and the hit adult-comedy Hara Hara Mahadevaki. Unfazed by the criticism he received for Hara Hara Mahadevaki, Gautham has gone on to sign yet another adult-comedy and it was launched last week.
The project, which has been titled Iruttu Arayil Murattu Kuthu, reunites Gautham with director Santhosh Kumar of Hara Hara Mahadevaki fame. Apparently, the film will be entirely shot in Bangkok and the makers are busy finalising the rest of the cast and crew. Studio Green will bankroll the project and Oviya is rumoured to be the leading lady.
Having made his acting debut with Mani Ratnamâ€™s Kadal and followed by a string of unsuccessful films such as Yennamo Yedho, Vai Raja Vai and Muthuramalingam, it could be said that Gautham found his mojo back this year with his projects which despite a mixed response from critics and audiences alike, did decent business at the box-office.
Last week, Gautham signed another new project under the direction of Thiru, best known for helming Samar and Naan Sigappu Manithan. This film features Gautham alongside his father Karthik, veteran Tamil actor, for the first time and he plays a boxer in the movie. Regina Cassandra and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar have been finalised as the leading ladies. This film goes on the floors from November.
Gautham has an interesting line-up of films in his kitty and these include an Indiana Jones inspired action-adventure flick Indrajith, which is long due for release, and Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren, in which he has shared screen space with Vijay Sethupathi.
