The young filmmaker currently has three films awaiting release, including the ongoing project Maaran with Dhanush
Karthick and Atharvaa
Looks like Karthick Naren has mastered the art of constantly hitting the headlines. The young filmmaker, who last directed Project Agni, a short from the much-expected Navarasa, is busy with Dhanush-starrer Maaran, the shooting of which was happening at a brisk pace at Hyderabad. The first look of the movie was released recently, much to the delight of the star's fans. It is now heard that Atharvaa will play the lead in the director's next project which is likely to be bankrolled by Ayngaran International. If everything goes well, the film will also mark the comeback of the leading production house after a brief hiatus. An official announcement on the same is awaited.
Fans of Karthick, whose last theatrical release was Arun Vijay-starrer Mafia, is looking forward to the release of the multi-starrer flick Naragasooran, which was supposed to release on an OTT platform this month. Looks like it will take some more time for the movie to stream on digital avenues. His ambitious project, Naadaga Medai, which was announced three years ago, is yet to go on floors.
Contrary to the speculation that the film has been shelved, Karthick, in a recent interview, revealed that the project will take off and that it has been temporarily put in hold for some reasons. He had announced earlier that Naadaga Medai will be a 'a light-hearted film about the modern day society through the eyes of youngsters with varying perceptions about life'.
On the other hand, Atharvaa, whose last outing was Gaddalakonda Ganesh, which marked his Telugu debut, was the remake of Tamil hit film Jigarthanda. He currently has a few projects lined up, including Kuruthi Aattam, Thalli Pogathey and a film with Mysskin which are riding on good expectations. The former, directed by Sri Ganesh, is expected to be a theatrical release in September.
