Saguni: Karthi’s first-ever full-length serious film?
September 24, 2015
It is reliably learnt that the shooting of the film Saguni, which would be actor Karthi’s first release after getting married a few months back, has entered the final stages. The film pairs Kannada starlet Pranitha, who debuted earlier in the year as heroine opposite Arulnidhi in Udhayan, opposite Karthi.
Deviating from Karthi’s feel-good and humourous films, Saguni is tipped to the actor’s first-ever full-length serious film. Directed by debutant director Shankar Dayal, the film is said to feature many sequences resembling the 2-G ‘spectrum scam’ which is currently rocking the nation.
The character of Nira Radia, who was spoken about as the main ‘agent’ between the tainted Union Ministers and the commercial companies, does feature in the film, it is said. In fact, it is further added that the whole screenplay revolves around a female character modeled on the lines of Radi’s style of operation.
The film, as such, won’t be the story of Nira Radia but would deal with her ‘part’ in the mega-scam. The clash between Karthi, who plays the hero, and the female artiste who plays Radia, would be one of the highlights of the film, says Dayal.
