Karuppan Movie Show
Karuppan (English: Karuppan (given name)) is an upcoming action thriller film written and directed by R. Panneerselvam, starring Vijay Sethupathi, Bobby Simha and Tanya in the leading roles. The film began production during January 2017. After the production of Naan Thaan Siva was postponed as a result of Thirrupathi Brothers' financial problems, R. Panneerselvam announced in September 2016 that he would collaborate with Vijay Sethupathi for a film. Produced by A. M. Rathnam, the team approached Keerthy Suresh to play the lead role later that month, but the actress did not sign the project owing to schedule clashes. Ritika Singh was initially signed on to play the lead role, but was later replaced by Lakshmi Menon before production had begun. Lakshmi Menon later pulled out of the film citing an injury and was replaced by Tanya. Bobby Simha agreed to play the antagonist in the film, despite earlier opting to star only in leading roles.
