Sathuranga Vettai starring cinematographer Natraj in the lead role was a sleeper hit. The black comedy / heist thriller was a small budget film but earned big moolah at the box office. The critics termed the movie as cool and flawless, following all these accolades director Vinodh narrated scripts to Suriya and Ajith. though Suriya had given his nod, the film kept getting postponed.

Now Karthi has signed on the young director and the story is said to be a political thriller. Karthi has already shown his mettle in political dramas like Madras and Saguni. The movie will be produced by Dream Warriors and will start rolling once Karthi wraps up Mani Ratnam’s project.
