The real life father-son duo, Gautham Karthik and Karthik will play father and son in Thiru’s upcoming film. “It is a story revolving around a father and son, and then gets into action mode in the second half. Gautham and Karthik sir play a father and son, who have a friendly relationship, in a middle-class household. Gautham plays a boxer, while Karthik sir plays a government officer,” says Thiru.
About the reason behind choosing this film, Karthik says, “After the release of Kadal, we got a few offers to do films as a father and son onscreen. But Gautham and I were very particular that we shouldn’t be acting together just for the sake of it and the script had to be really extraordinary. I’m also directing a movie, and I was planning that maybe we will work together in my second or third directorial. But this came as a total surprise. Generally, the two of us don’t discuss scripts, but one day, Gautham told me that he had listened to a great script from Thiru and asked me if I could hear it. I was very impressed after listening to it; it was a brilliant script, the best I had listened to in recent times. I immediately asked Thiru and Dhananjayan, ‘When are we shooting?’”
