The project, titled Yenni Yezhu Naal, is rumoured to be a mass masala entertainer with sufficient scope for comedy, romance and action. The rest of the cast and crew haven’t been decided upon yet.
Karthi has worked with Lingusamy in the past, in the super hit movie Paiyya, in which he co starred with Tamannah. The movie also had a hit soundtrack with the likes of ‘Thulli Thulli Mazhayai..’.
Karthi is really in need of a big hit these days as his previous four movies – Sagini, Alex Pandian, All in All Azhagu Raja and Biriyani- have been box office failures.
He is currently working on P A Ranjith’s Kaali, while Lingusamy’s Anjaan starring Karthi’s own brother superstar Surya will release on August 15, the independence day.
The interesting mix of casting and direction has already granted the project some buzz and the audience will have to wait to see if Karthi can deliver a hit this time.
