Actor Karunakaran has bagged a biggie. The actor will be part of the Thala 57’s supporting cast, which is touted to be a nail biting spy thriller. Karunakaran has made a name for himself with his natural comedy acts which is refreshing from the usual slap stick or punch dialogue comedies. The actor confirmed the news on his social networking page and thanked the director Siva, Ajith and Ajith’s fans.

He is a regular fixture in Nalan Kumarasamy and Karthik Subbaraj’s ventures as he himself broke into the film scene through short films. The actor is popular for his roles in Pizza, Soodhu Kavvum, Jigirithanda, Linga and Iraivi. He will be seen soon in Dhanush’s Thodari.

Thala 57 has Kajal Aggarwal playing female lead with Akshara Haasan, Thambi Ramaiah and Appu Kutty in key roles. The film’s next schedule is due to start this Friday. Anirudh will be composing the music.
