After taking on the might of dreaded dacoits of North India in ‘Khakee’, Tamil and Telugu actor Karthi will be fighting for the farmers’ woes in his upcoming film `Chinna Babu’ slated for release on July 13. Directed by Pandiraj, the film, based on a farmer’s story, is produced by Karthi’s brother Suriya and the Telugu distribution rights have been bought by Miryala Ravinder Reddy.
Karthi has a new task on hand
Sayyesha is the female lead while Sathyaraj (of Kattappa fame) is playing an important role in the film. Sathru will be seen in a negative role. Although Karthi wanted to work with young director Pandiraj, who made the national award winning film ‘Pasanga’ , yet, it happened only now. “ ’Pasanga’ was a great film on parenting,’ he said and added “the title ‘Chinna Babu’ aptly fits since I have five elders sisters in this film,’ he added.
