Karthi-starrer ‘Kaithi’ has emerged the silent winner this Deepavali, with the film attracting more footfalls thanks to the postive reviews and word of mouth (WOM). Following this, the number of screens and shows of the film has been increased.
According to sources, the movie’s collections have already crossed the break-even mark and the film is heading towards emerging one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. ‘Kaithi’ has managed to achieve this despite competing with Vijay-starrer ‘Bigil’.
Audience and critics have been praising the strong script of director Lokesh Kanagaraj and the solid performance of Karthi. Already, Karthi and Lokesh Kanagaraj have dropped enough hints that they would make a sequel to the movie.
Speaking to journalists, Karthi said that he will be doing ‘Kaithi 2’ with Lokesh Kanagaraj.
He also said that the director called him on Friday night and asked for only 30 days to finish the shoot of ‘Kaithi 2’.
Lokesh took to Twitter and said, “Thanx for the overwhelming response guys,.. loved every minute in sets and the entire process of making kaithi…will cherish this forever! Thank you once again prabu sir and karthi sir for the opportunity!..To answer all your txts and calls yes“ Dilli will be back”.”
