“I usually insist on reading the entire script. It extracts a one-line idea and some visuals, however, it seems that it had a lot of scope for drama, and I went with my gut instinct, "Actor says, on a phone call," in Kadikutty Singam (One of the actor's previous hit films), I had four sisters and had so much drama. Now, I have a hundred brothers who are all thugs! "
This gave Carthy the notion of an arresting scene, and this aroused him. Producer SR Prabhu shared the same sentiment, and Sultan was going on.
“For the first few days, we did not know where to place the camera… because there were too many people in one frame. The script was challenging for technicians and cinematographers, ”says Karthi, recalling the days of shooting in a village near Dindigul. Sultan Napoleon, Lal, Yogi Babu and Rashmika Mandana are also in important roles.
'Do not tick & # 39;
He is still receiving accolades for the 2019 film Dilli directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj Kathy, But Carthy feels that a balance of styles is a must for any actor.

Making a commercial film (eg) Sultan) The most difficult, because you have to pack in many emotions and engage audiences of all age groups. A character has to draw different moods of the film. In addition, the audience is required to enter a commercial film with a relaxed mindset; They should come to entertain, and not score for it! "
Like their 2017 hit Theran Adigaram Ondru, Sultan Will also be a strong villain who will have an important place in the story, promises the actor.
Here, Karti comes face to face with Ramchandra Raju, who made his presence felt in the Kannada superhit KGF. "A hero can become big only when there is a strong villain; That's when it becomes fun to watch. Thanks for doing KGF, Ramachandra had an excellent screen presence and was on set despite not being from the film industry.
Karthi and team have taken the theater route to release SultanDespite offers from OTT platforms. “During the epidemic, we lost the sense of gathering and socializing. We filmed Sultan Long ago, but the fact that it is being released now is almost as if it is celebrating. For cinema lovers, watching films in theaters is a cultural process. "
However, this does not dismiss the OTT for the actor. He is ready to take on a project, provided it allows him to experience a completely different culture. "They (OTT platforms) give you the freedom to explore a wide variety of content, things you can't do for the big screen. Last year, when we were unsure of all theaters, OTT was the only one for a producer. There was relief. Now we have crossed that stage; Guru ji It has been proved that people will still dominate the cinema halls. "
