A film that Tamil cinema fans everywhere are waiting to watch is the upcoming Dhanush starrer, Karnan, directed by Pariyerum Perumal fame Mari Selvaraj and produced by Kalaipuli S. Thanu's V Creations banner. A special release black and white announcement teaser was unveiled last month in which we got to see the first visuals of Dhanush holding a big sword along with the reveal that the film would be hitting theatres worldwide this April. As post-production works are currently being carried out at an active pace, Kalaipuli Thanu on Saturday dropped the bombshell announcement on social media that the Karnan first look poster and the film's theatrical release date will be unveiled on Sunday (February 14) at 11.06AM. 

Touted to be an action drama amidst a rural backdrop, Karnan has composer Santhosh Narayanan for the music, who recently watch the film and showered showered praises on Dhanush for his performance, while also complimenting director Mari Selvaraj, producer Kalaipuli Thanu and the entire team for their mammoth efforts. Producer Thanu's today wrote on Twitter, "We are bringing you the first look poster and theatrical release date announcement of #Karnan at 11:06 am tomorrow. Gear up! @dhanushkraja @Music_Santhosh @mari_selvaraj @KarnanTheMovie #KarnanArrivesOnApril". This latest announcement will no doubt come as a big reason for Dhanush fans to cheer as they await to witness the National Award-winning actor on the big screen once again after last year's Pattas and expect him to deliver yet another power-packed performance on the lines of Asuran in 2019. 

There are massive expectations surrounding Karnan as it also marks director Mari Selvaraj's next after his blockbuster debut, Pariyerum Perumal, which took Tamil Nadu by storm in 2018. Producer Kalaipuli Thanu too will be looking to hit the bullseye with the upcoming film, especially after his previous collaboration with Dhanush, Asuran, under Vetri Maaran's direction turned out to be a super success critically and commercially. Apart from Dhanush in the lead role, Karnan's star cast also includes popular Malayalam actress Rajisha Vijayan playing the female lead, with veteran actors Lal and Azhagam Perumal, followed by Yogi Babu, Natty (a) Natarajan Subramanian, including 96 and Master fame Gouri G. Kishan and Lakshmi short film actress Lakshmi Priyaa Chandramouli in major supporting roles. Karnan also has a strong technical team featuring names like cinematographer Theni Eshwar, editor RK Selva and art director Ramalingam, whose work in 'Superstar' Rajinikanth's Kabali went on to garner him wide appreciation.
