Karan started his career with Namavar in a negative role. The film was well received and his role was appreciated by all. Though Karan made his debut long back, the actor turned into a mainstream hero only with Kokki. Later, Kathavaran, Karuppasamy Kuthagaitharar and Malayan brought him into the limelight. Now his upcoming release Thambi Vettothi Sundaram, directed by V.C. Vadivudayan, has already created a lot of hype even before its release.
According to sources, Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan is very keen to buy the remake rights of the film. But seeing that the film has a huge market in Andhra Pradesh as well, producer J. Senthil Kumar has decided to dub and release the film simultaneously in Telugu also.
Thambi Vettothi Sundaram, starring Anjali (of Angadi Theru fame) and Karan in the lead roles, is based on a real-life incident that happened in Kanyakumari district. Karan plays the title role of Sundaram. The producers are planning to launch the audio by August and the film will grace theatres in September.
