Chennai: Karthi, who has been riding high on the success of Mani Ratnam's 'Ponniyin Selvan' franchise, is all set to captivate audiences once again in the upcoming film 'Japan.' Directed by the talented Raju Murugan, 'Japan' promises to be a quirky action thriller that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
'Japan' holds significant importance for Karthi as it marks his 25th film. The cast also includes Anu Emmanuel, Sunil, and Vijay Milton, who play pivotal roles in the movie.
