Following his controversial adult comedy Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu, Gautham Karthik has signed his next film which will be directed by Muthaiah, popular for his rural-based projects such as Komban and Marudhu.
Titled Devarattam, the film was officially launched with a customary puja on Monday in Chennai. The news about the project did make the rounds a few months ago but it was never officially verified. To be bankrolled by Studio Green, the film will also star Soori in a key role.
Talking about the film, producer Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green, told The New Indian Express: āThe film will go on floors on June 4. It will be a village-based commercial film similar to Komban. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalized. Announcements about the cast will be made once we confirm the actors. As for the crew, weāve got cinematographer Sakthi Saravanan of Mankatha and Saroja fame. Nivas Prasanna will handle the music and Praveen KL will be in charge of editing.ā
Meanwhile, reports have emerged that a sequel to Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu is in the offing. Apparently, Gautham Karthik and the filmās 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 are set to reunite soon. āAs an actor, I donāt 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. Iām aware that people can easily typecast when you do certain kind of films and thatās why we brought in the horror angle in Iruttu Araiyil to balance things out,ā Gautham said in a recent media interaction.
