Eashvar Karthic, who comes from a theatre background, says his introduction to Karthik Subbaraj was through Vijay Sethupathi, who happens to be a common friend. "When I narrated the script to Karthik, he was instantly impressed, and came forward to produce the film under his own banner. Keerthy Suresh will be seen in an intense role, very different from those in her earlier films. The film will be a female-centric thriller, and it will also feature some experienced actors. The casting is currently going on, and an official announcement will be made soon," he adds.
The yet-to-be-titled film, with cinematography by Kharthik Palani and music by Santhosh Narayanan, is expected to go on floors soon.
Meanwhile, Keerthy is busy shooting for her two female-centric Telugu films directed by Narendra and Nagesh Kukunoor, respectively. She has also signed a Bollywood sports drama with Badhaai Ho-director Amit Sharma, alongside Ajay Devgn. In addition to this, she will also be seen in a brief role in Priyadharshan and Mohanlal’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham.
Karthik Subbaraj, on the other hand, is all set to direct Dhanush in an action-thriller next. The filmmaker's last film was the Rajinikanth-starrer Petta.
