Actor Karthi’s Saguni and Alex Pandian fared poorly at the box-office and he is now betting big on Venkat Prabhu's Biriyani and All in All Azhaguraja with Rajesh.
The audio of Karthi-starrer Alex Pandian was launched on December 12, apparently to coincide with Superstar Rajinikanth's birthday.
Devi Sri Prasad's numbers for the film are already topping the charts. Meanwhile, in an effort to promote the album, a grand Alex Pandian musical night is being planned on December 30. According to sources, leading artistes will perform on stage on the occasion. It is said that the event would be held at the YMCA Grounds in Royapettah, Chennai.
Karthi didn't have any release for a while after Aayirathil Oruvan before Saguni happened. Now, the actor is pretty busy with a couple of projects, and it seems Alex Pandian directed by Suraaj will release for the Pongal festival early in 2013.
Karthi is gearing up to begin shooting for Venkat Prabhu's Biriyani soon before moving on to Rajesh's All in All Azhagu Raja.
To remake popular and successful movies of Superstar Rajinikanth, has become more of a fashion these days. The list of movies that were remade is quite long and those that immediately spring to mind are Murattu Kaalai, Billa and Padikkathavan.
Now, the buzz is that Thillu Mullu is to be remade with Shiva of Chennai-28 fame reprising the Superstar's role. Meanwhile, rumours have it that two more popular actors have been zeroed in to join the cast.
The euphoria over Saguni opposite Karthi has hardly died down for Pranitha, but the actress already has another reason to celebrate. The pretty Kannada girl has been paired opposite Suriya in Gautham Vasudev Menon's next.
Sources say that, Suriya and Pranitha will be acting together in a film titled, Thuppariyum Anandhan.
The Saguni team is riding high on the success of their film. The movie's hero Karthi was ecstatic as he attended back to back success meets in Hyderabad and Chennai.
He said his comedy scenes with Santhanam and the naming of characters as Rajini and Kamal worked big time for Saguni.
Karthi said, “The success of Saguni is due to team work, marketing and promotion by Studio Green.”
Even as the world awaits the release of his Saguni, Karthi is said to be busy with work. He is presently in Puducherry shooting for his next movie Alex Pandian.
Karthi, whose latest film Saguni has hit the screens today, is joined in Puducherry by Anushka. Director Suraaj is filming a fight sequence involving the lead actors, sources have it.
Alex Pandian also stars Santhanam, Nikitha and Sanusha in crucial roles. Devi Sri Prasad has scored the music.
