Karthik Rathnam on his journey from the stage to cinema: I find films more difficult than theatre
Former theatre artiste Karthik rose to fame with the Maha Venkatesh-directed 2018 film C/O Kancharapalem. He later went on to do noteworthy roles in his movie career.
In an earlier interview with OTTplay, the actor revealed how his transition to cinema had affected him. “After the theatre stint, I did a few roles in my childhood and teenage years in Bhairava, Nagaram Nidrapotunna Vela, Gang Stars and Social, before C/O Kancharapalem happened. It took me a lot of time to adapt to films after theatre. I find films more difficult than theatre. Even when the same sequence is shot after a 20-day gap, you need to maintain the same emotion,” Karthik elaborated.
