Fresh of the success of the controversial adult comedy Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu, Gautham Karthik has teamed up with director Muthaiah, popular for his rural-based projects such as Komban and Marudhu, for a rural-based project. Titled Devarattam, the film was officially launched with a customary pooja on May 22 in Chennai. Over the weekend, the makers confirmed that Manjima Mohan, who was launched by Gautham Vasudev Menon in Achcham Yenbathu Madamaiyada, has been signed opposite Gautham in the film.
The news about the project did make the rounds a few months ago but it was never officially verified until yesterday. To be bankrolled by Studio Green, the film will also star Soori in a key role. The film starts rolling from today. It will be a village-based commercial film similar to Komban. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalized. As for the crew, weâ€™ve got cinematographer Sakthi Saravanan of Mankatha and Saroja fame. Nivas Prasanna will handle the music and Praveen KL will be in charge of editing.
Meanwhile, reports have emerged that a sequel to Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu is in the offing. Apparently, Gautham Karthik and the filmâ€™s director Santhosh P Jayakumar have set their eyes on an adult comedy franchise along the lines of the Grand Masti series. Having worked together in Hara Hara Mahadevaki and Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu, the duo is set to reunite soon. â€śAs an actor, I donâ€™t like to restrict myself. My dream is to work across all genres. Santhosh and I will do another adult comedy, but before that we want to work on a different genre. Iâ€™m aware that people can easily typecast when you do certain kind of films and thatâ€™s why we brought in the horror angle in Iruttu Araiyil to balance things out,â€ť Gautham said in a recent media interaction.
