The success of Karuppasamy Kuthagaitharar has changed the fortunes of Karan. The actor, who after playing baddie in several films, ventured to do the lead role in Kokki. The movie won him a lot of praise.
He followed it up with Karuppasamy Kuthgaitharar. Featuring Karan as hero, the movie released a few weeks ago. It has completed successfully 25 days in over 60 theatres across the State.
But when heroes are averse to share their success, Karan sportingly praises the team of Karuppasamy Kuthagaitharar.
A happy Karan says, 'Debutant director Murthy deserves a pat for shaping up my character in an interesting manner. Also Vadivelu needs to be commended by his good humor in the movie. I learnt the art of getting the timing right from Vadivelu. His presence was a huge help to me and a great motivating factor. Of course, I could have done better with my body language in the film'.
'I think the audience approved of the way my character developed, in particular my sacrifice to help my ladylove pursue her studies,' he says.
