Following the debacle of Dev, which was released amidst a lot of hype, Karthi got busy working in three movies simultaneously. While one is the action thriller Kaithi directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the second is an untitled film directed by Bagiyaraj Kannan and the third a Jeethu Joseph directorial.

The latest we hear about Kaithi, which is in the final stages of post-production, is that the makers are aiming for a September 27 release.

The industry grapevine is that the film’s story will unfold in a span of 48 hours and follow a fugitive on the run. The teaser visuals, featuring Karthi with a thick beard, promise an intense action thriller. The teaser opens with a cop telling his colleagues that they will stay off the road on this particular night for reasons we will get to know when we watch the film. Going by the rest of the teaser, it looks like a group of gangsters are after someone and it’s safe to assume that the person is Karthi.

The film, starring Karthi, Narain and George Maryan, is produced jointly by SR Prakashbabu and SR Prabhu under the banner Dream Warrior Pictures and co-produced by Tiruppur Vivek under the banner Vivekananda Pictures. The film’s soundtrack is composed by Sam CS, with Philomin Raj handled the editing and Sathyan Sooryan cranking the camera.

Meanwhile, Karthi recently joined the sets of the Bagiyaraj Kannan film in Dindigul. Napolean, Lal, Yogi Babu and Sathish form the supporting cast of this flick. The technical crew includes music by Vivek-Mervin, Ruben for editing, and Dhilip Subbarayan for action choreography.

The actor also has a film under Jeethu Joseph directorial which was wrapped up recently. Karthi and his sister-in-law Jyothika will be sharing screen space for the first time in this film and this has created a lot of expectations. They reportedly play siblings in this film. According to sources, the shooting of this untitled film has been completed in a single stretch and its release date is expected to be out soon.
