The film will have a grand release and it will be Karthi's first release this year. Viruman is directed by Muthaiya who is known for directing movies like Kutti Puli, Komban, Marudhu, and more. Produced by Suriya under the banner of 2D Entertainment, the film features Shankar's daughter Aditi Shankar playing the female lead and the fans are eagerly looking forward to witnessing the refreshing pair together on-screen. Yuvan Shankar Raja has scored music for the film.

Earlier today (August 9), Karthi and Aditi Shankar met the press and media in Kerala to promote the film there and the actors were posed with several interesting questions. One such question was about Kaithi 2. When he was asked about the update of Kaithi 2, Karthi revealed that the film is surely happening, adding that it will go on floors next year once director Lokesh Kanagaraj completes his film with Thalapathy Vijay. Answering the question, Karthi replied, "I anticipated this. Kaithi 2.. we are planning it next year. Once Lokesh (Kanagaraj) completes Vijay sir's film, we will start".

Karthi's reply has now turned viral among the fans and has already garnered attention on social media. Kaithi is an important film in Karthi's filmography and following the release of Vikram, the fans have been eagerly looking forward to Kaithi 2. The fans are surely in for some exciting treat and let us wait for further updates to roll out, next year. Interestingly, Karthi has also confirmed that Lokesh's next film would be with Thalapathy Vijay and the Master duo are all set to reunite to deliver another blockbuster.
