Karthi is known for his noble and philanthropic activities. Recently, the star took time off from the sets of Komban to visit the children suffering from muscular dystrophy disease in Tirunelveli.

Karthi was shooting for this film in the area when he came to know of the Institute of Muscular Dystrophy and Research Centre located in Veeravanallur, Tirunelveli Dist, a centre for children suffering from this disorder. Following this, he decided to cheer up the kids with his presence and did so. The kids were thoroughly happy to meet their favourite star. This is indeed a kind gesture from the star to take time off his busy schedule!

It may be mentioned here that Komban is being directed by Muthiah of Kutty Puli fame.
