When both Surya & Karthi enjoy a big market in Andhra Pradesh, almost all their films are dubbed into Telugu. Karthi had his Paruthiveeran, Aayirathil Oruvan and Paiyaa dubbed in Telugu which turned out to be hits.
Recently, Naan Mahaan Alla is dubbed as “Naa Peru Shiva” for which he has been stationed in Hyderabad. There he told reporters that he would be doing a straight Telugu film to be directed by Bommarilu Baskar.
Karthi says that he wants to honor the support given by the Telugu audiences for his film by acting in a straight Telugu film. It will be a neatly packed commercial entertainer, typical of Telugu movies. Though it is all about the market, Karthi has rhetorically maintained that he signs a straight Telugu film for the sake of the audience.
