Both Suriya’s upcoming flick directed by Selvaraghavan and Karthi’s next movie to be helmed by newcomer Rajath will be funded by Reliance Entertainment.
According to sources, Reliance is planning to invest in south Indian movies and it considers the ventures of Suriya and Karthi as safe bets. “Many more plans too are in pipeline for Reliance for the south,” sources said.
At present, Karthi is busy shooting for ‘Kadaikutti Singam’ directed by Pandiraj. In the movie, he is playing a smart and proud farmer who makes Rs 1.50 lakh per month from agriculture.
Says Pandiraj, “once the film gets released, I am sure many software professionals and others in the city would quit their jobs and take up farming as profession. Villages are where our roots are and I want many to go back to rural areas.”
