Karthi’s condition to ‘Thozha’ teamPublished: January 22, 2016
It was NTR Junior who was initially roped in to act with Nagarjuna in ‘Oopiri’. After he walked out, Karthi was signed for the role and the film was made into a bilingual, with its Tamil version getting the name ‘Thozha’.
As soon as he signed on the dotted line, Karthi asked the makers of the movie to give him bound volume of the Telugu dialogues in advance, so that he could practice them before standing in front of the camera.
“Since this is his first direct Telugu film, Karthi wasn’t ready to take things easy. He did a lot of homework to get the dialogues with the right accent,” sources said.
The film, directed by Vamsi Paidipalli, is produced by PVP Cinema. Tamannah is the lead lady, while Gopi Sunder composes the film’s music. Nagarjuna plays a paralysed billionaire and Karthi his caretaker.
