Karthi to play the lead in Jeethu Joseph’s next Tamil film
Jeethu Joseph is one of the most wanted filmmakers in Malayalam cinema currently. The ‘Drishyam’ director is gradually trying expanding his wings to other industries as well. Earlier this year, he finished works for his Hindi debut, The Body, starring Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor. The movie is expected to hit screens by the end of this year.
The latest we hear is that Jeethu is all set to make a return to Tamil cinema with a Karthi starrer. The director made his Tamil debut three years back with ‘Papanasam’, the official remake of ‘Drishyam’. The movie starring Kamal Haasan was both a critical and commercial success. When the director teams up with Karthi, one of the top stars of K-Town, expectations are bound to be on the higher side. More details are not yet known but the movie is highly likely to be a thriller, which is the director’s forte.
Jeethu is currently busy working on his upcoming Malayalam film with Kalidas Jayaram. The movie which is rumoured to be titled as Mr.Rowdy has Kalidas, Aparna Balamurali and a bunch of other youngsters in the cast.
