Director Suraj’s, Karthi starrer has got its title at last. The flick starring Karthi and long legs Anushka Shetty in the lead went on floors as early as September last year. Being an action-masala offering with, 3 more heroines part of the shoots, the director was in search of a suitable title for his big project.
Taking inspiration from Rajini’s cult classic Moondru Mugam, he has zeroed in on the title Alex Pandian. Infact Karthi’s brother Surya has openly cited, how Rajini’s cop act in Moondru Mugam gave him a real kick preparing for his police officer role in Singham. Rajini’s character as Alex Pandian still connects well with many fans and now it’s Karthi choosing the same for his forthcoming mass offering. The lead pair has shot some action scenes in the dense Chalakudy forests of Kerala, having to face some elephant trouble on that account. They later had special protection from guards so as to carry the shoots forward smoothly. ‘Alex Pandian’ Karthi also has another release in Saguni that is expected for the month of April.
Now it’s for fans to decide whether Karthi lives up to the name.
