First look poster of Karthi's Japan out
The upcoming film is directed by Raju Murugan
The first look poster of Japan, starring actor Karthi in the lead role, was released by the makers on social media on Monday. The upcoming project marks Karthi's 25th film as an actor.
The first look of Japan features an inebriated Karthi clad in a red jumpsuit, lying on a sofa. Behind the sofa, on the wall, hangs a golden frame, which again features Karthi wearing a golden shirt and chains, as he holds a golden gun. It is not yet clear if the actor will play dual roles in the film.
The upcoming film is directed by Raju Murugan, who previously helmed Joker. Dream Warrior Pictures, which produced Joker, is bankrolling Japan as well. The banner has backed Karthi’s previous films like Saguni, Kashmora, Theeran Adhigaram Ondru, Kaithi and Sultan.
Japan was launched recently and will have Anu Emmanuel play the female lead. Actor Sunil, who predominantly works in Telugu films, will also be part of Japan's cast, along with cinematographer-director Vijay Milton.
The music of Japan will be composed by GV Prakash Kumar, while Philomin Raj will be handling the edits. Ravi Varman and Vinesh Banglan is the cinematographer and production designer of the film respectively. The first schedule of shooting will begin soon.
Japan will release in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
