We had told you that Karthi is teaming up with filmmaker Raju Murugan for a movie which has been tentatively titled Japan. The makers have made it official with a ceremony today which was attended by the cast and crew of the film.
SR Prabhu's Dream Warrior Pictures is bankrolling the movie which has Anu Emmanuel playing the female lead in it. GV Prakash has been roped in to compose music for the film which marks Karthi's 25th project. The actor-composer duo had recently collaborated for Sardar which turned out to be a huge hit at the box office.
The team has also shared a few pictures from the launch event, leaving movie buffs elated. Ravi Varman, who has been garnering appreciation from all quarters for his work in Ponniyin Selvan, will crank the camera for Japan which has Philomin Raj coming on board as its editor.
National Award winning stunt choreographer duo Anbariv will be helming action sequences of the movie which marks the reunion of Karthi and Dream Warrior Pictures after Sulthan.
Japan also marks the comeback of Anu Emmanuel to Kollywood after Sivakarthikeyan's Namma Veettu Pillai. The actress was last seen in Tollywood project Urvasivo Rakshasivo which was released a few days ago. The film is the remake of Tamil hit movie Pyaar Prema Kaadhal.
Japan is expected to be released in theatres in 2023. Post the film, Karthi is likely to team up with Arunraja Kamaraj after which he will take up the much-awaited Kaithi 2 to be helmed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. The actor is currently on a high after the hattrick success of Viruman, Ponniyin Selvan and Sardar.
