CHENNAI: Budding artiste and veteran actor Sivakumar's son Karthi, who is into his first movie, had a different kind of start.
He was made to act before a still camera for four days before he faced the movie camera.
Karthi was working as an assistant to Mani Ratnam in `Ayutha Ezhutthu,' which starred Sivakumar's elder son Surya.
"Paruthi Veeran," produced by K.E. Gnanavel, features Karthi and Priya Mani. Ameer is directing the movie. Karthi was asked to act before a still camera for nearly four days in Ammapatti, near Theni.
The stills, which were seen by all the unit members, had a positive effect. Karthi was seen as a young man full of vigour and a powerful sense of acting.
Ameer, who is also in charge of story and screenplay, had one request for Karthi: get himself tanned some more.
Now one can see Karthi taking a `catamaran' and going in to the sea for some hours to get sufficiently tanned.
The name of the hero in the film is Paruthi Veeran and Priya Mani is doing the character of Muthazhagu.
The story is about an angry young man with a clean heart, fighting for the people of his village.
The music is scored by Uvan Shanker Raja and camera is handled by Ramji.
