The shooting of Karthi’s Komban has commenced in Paramakudi, confirm sources in the tinsel town. The film will be wrapped up in a 70-day-long schedule, we hear. Directed by Muthiah of Kutti Puli fame, this film has Karthi playing the male lead with Lakshmi Menon roped in as his onscreen pair.

Komban is touted to be a village subject and Karthi is banking on this film very much as he is desperately in need of a hit. Raj Kiran and Thambi Ramaiah play important roles in this movie and ace stunt master Super Subbarayan will be seen in as the menacing villain. Yuvan Shankar Raja will score the music for this venture, produced by Studio Green.
