Karthick Naren made an impressive debut with his critically-acclaimed and highly successful crime-thriller Dhuruvangal 16 aka D 16. Despite making a very noteworthy debut, his second film, Naragasooran, a suspense drama featuring an ensemble cast of Arvind Swami, Indrajith, Shriya Saran, Sundeep Kishan and Aathmika, is yet to find a theatrical release. Undeterred by the delay in the release of his second film, Karthick has quickly moved on to his next project and it is believed that he has signed a new project with Arun Vijay, who is basking in the runaway success of Thadam.
If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, Lyca Productions has signed Karthick for a new project which will feature Arun Vijay. Apparently, the makers liked the script of Karthickâ€™s next project and immediately signed him. Theyâ€™re said to have approached Arun with the offer and heâ€™s yet to officially sign on the dotted line, but has believed to have agreed in principle. An official announcement is expected to be made in a few weeks. Meanwhile, Arun Vijay is currently working on Agni Siragugal with Vijay Antony and Boxer with Ritika Singh. He recently wrapped up the shoot of the multilingual Saaho.
There are also reports that Naragasooran, produced by Gautham Menon, will finally manage to hit the screens this year a suspense drama. The project started rolling from September 15 in Ooty last year and was predominantly shot inside a house. Apparently, Sundeepâ€™s role was originally supposed to be played by Naga Chaitanya, who backed out in the last minute due to reasons yet unknown. The film said to be the story of a fallen demon, and it will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Ron Yohaan has composed the music.
