Karthi's upcoming movie Alex Pandian, under Suraaj's direction, has been widely anticipated by his fans! The Kerala distribution rights of Alex Pandian have sold for a staggering Rs. 1.10 Crores. Sayujan Films have snapped up the rights, and will be promoting the movie in Kerala. Though there were initial plans to have Karthi himself dub for the movie in Malayalam, but as he was not too comfortable with the idea, it was dropped! This movie is set for release this Pongal, and has Anushka playing the female lead, opposite Karthi, and Santhanam taking care of the comedy! Music has been composed by Devi Sri Prasad, and will be releasing tomorrow, 12.12.12! The day has been chosen specifically, as it is Superstar Rajni's birthday, and Alex Pandian is the name of Superstar's character in his blockbuster movie, Moondru Mugam!
