Director AL Vijay has reportedly roped in Telugu actor Naga Shourya for his next Tamil-Telugu bilingual, Karu. According to a Deccan Chronicle report, the crime-thriller would be produced by Lyca Productions and has Sai Pallavi as the female lead.
While Naga Shourya is a well-known actor in Telugu cinema – his performance was appreciated in Jyo Achyutananda and Abbayitho Ammayi – Karu would mark his debut in Tamil cinema.
Vijay, whose film Vanamagan starring Jayam Ravi and Sayyesha Saigal will release next month, is currently busy with the final scripting of Karu. The film will go on floors once Vanamangan releases.
Naga Shourya, meanwhile, has signed a film helmed by debutant Sundar, called Ammagaarillu. He will be seen in Nara Rohith’s Kathalo Rajakumari and is also part of an action movie helmed by DOP-turned-director Sai Sriram.
